On Monday 4 Medi an excellent protest was held outside Wrecsam Guild Hall where the Planning Committee of Wrecsam Borough council were meeting to discuss matters regards the dumping of English rubbish at Hafod. Outside, over 300 protesters were calling for the Council to revoke the licence of the company dumping the waste. Local protesters were backed up by Embassy Glyndŵr staff, members of Cymuned, Balchder Cymru, Plaid Cymru and environmentalist groups. Despite overwhelming opposition to the dump the council did not revoke the licence and thus the dumping will continue and a precedent has been set - giving a green light to other English councils, collaborating with colonially minded Welsh Councils, to extend the operation of dumping English rubbish in Cymru.
A gauntlet has been thrown down and it is a challenge that must be met by all patriots rallying to continued protest action at Hafod Quarry. Patriots must ‘’Seize the time’’ for if now the gauntlet is not immediately taken up then the initiative will be lost - as will media interest - and without media interest the protest will be starved of the ‘’oxygen of publicity’’ and splutter out of strength, falter, fail and end in defeat. Thus, Embassy Glyndŵr proposes that patriots throw down their own ‘’Guantlet Glyndŵr’’ and ‘’seize the time ASAP and what better time to do this than on Saturday 16 Medi 2006 with an Owain Glyndŵr and his ‘’Bare Foot Welsh Doggis’’ march on Hafod quarry. Below are possibilities to consider:

Will Owain Glyndŵr and his Bare Foot Welsh Doggis march on
Hafod Quarry on 16 Medi 2006?

The possibilities? Read on:

Embassy Glyndŵr has been considering as to what would be the best way to more pro - actively support this protest campaign and here are a few suggestions as inspired by our knowledge of Hanes Glyndŵr:

Glyndŵr’s Patriots onward to Hafod on 16 September 2006.

If you are visiting the Gwlad Glyndŵr on 16 Medi 2006 and, after having made your visit to Llys Glyndyfrdwy and having climbed Caerdrewyn and raised your Baner Glyndŵr and, added a stone to ‘Carn Rhyddid 18 Medi 1400’, why not take a ride along the A5 on to the A539 and on to Hafod Quarry Rubbish Dump, Johnstown, Wrecsam. Once there, tie your yellow and red Glyndŵr ribbon to the gates or anywhere along the fence around the rubbish dump and leave the following message in large letters on a weather protected placards:

Owain Glyndŵr says… Do not dump your English Rubbish in Cymru!

That is the possible minimum and indeed it would be interesting to see how many 'Rubanau Glyndŵr' get tied to the fence around this ENGLISH RUBBISH DUMP IN WALES on ‘Dydd Glyndŵr’.

Now for the maximum possible but?

Owain Glyndwr and his Bare Foot Welsh Doggis will march on
Hafod Quarry on 16 Medi 2006...Perhaps?

EMBASSY GLYNDŴR SUGGESTION , others may wish to propose?

We suggest that an ‘Owain Glyndŵr and ’Barefoot Welsh Doggis’’ March’ on Hafod, on 16 Medi ‘Dydd Glyndŵr’, could be a good idea as, In history, following on the gathering at Caerdrewyn in September of 1400, Owain Glyndŵr, and, what in time was to become his army of national liberation, led a lightening attack on Ruthun and other colonial castle towns in the north east so, If Pobl Glyndŵr gathered at Caerdrewyn on Dydd Sadwrn 16 Medi ‘Dydd Glyndŵr’ this year to raise the Glyndŵr flag as suggested by us, then they could, symbolically, hand a Glyndŵr flag on a pole, at an assembly point in the car park at the foot of Caerdrewyn (near the leisure centre) to patriots willing to do the ‘’March of the Bare foot Welsh Doggis’’. A declaration could also be given to the marchers to tie to the gates of Hafod Rubbish Dump? This action would deliver a strong message to one and all that Glyndŵr’s campaign for justice for the Cymry continues and he is ‘very angry with those who claim to represent our interests and rights in regards to this rubbish issue!

If such was to be organised, it would require the support of as many organisations as possible as well as the backing of the Hafod Environmental Defence Committee. This initiative would also require some ‘on the ground’ and ‘en route’ organisation as well as back up support. please note, we would be unable, ourselves, to take a pro – active role in this march as we are, this year, committed to attending the Abercraf Gŵyl Glyndŵr but, we will, of course, publicise and promote the march should it take place.

Alternatively, perhaps a ‘Motorcade Glyndŵr’ could be organised from Caerdrewyn car park to Hafod and from a point close to the quarry a "symbolic march" could be held to the gates. This alternative would allow all to do the climb atop Caerdrewyn to raise their ‘Baneri Glyndŵr’ as we did on the way back from the Hafod protest, see pics below:
