ANNUALLY COMMEMORATING 16 MEDI 'DYDD GLYNDWR' LOCALLY IN EVERY COMMUNITY AND NATIONALLY IN CORWEN GWLAD GLYNDWR Item Reprinted From OGC 30 July 2006 Plus Links To Previous Posts To Provide Information Of Advantage To Organising For Dydd Glyndwr - POBL GLYNDWR MAKE THE EFFORT!

In the past most, if not all, we did as History Enthusiasts was done out of our own pockets, We have in our Gwaith Embassy Glyndwr no membership fee system and we have never made much of appeals for money. Rather we have sought sponsors and pobl Glyndŵr otherwise prepared to do Gwaith Glyndŵr. It has been a sad situation in Wales that many of an often 'Nationalist' persuasion have not always been to the fore in organising or being involved participating in commemoration and celebration of Hanes Owain Glyndŵr as much as they should be at a level other Small Nation Patriots commit to celebrating national heroes and significant National Events. I am thinking here particularly of the East European Nations as Poland and Hungary also the Baltic States. The reason for this possibly being the fact that Plaid Cymru once Nationalist Party no longer wishes to inherit the same enthusiasm that Gwynfor Evans contributed to promotion of celebrating Owain Glyndŵr. Gwynfor was an inspiration, supporter and contributor to both Cofiwn and Embassy Glyndŵr in it's work and commemorations. Not so Plaid Cymru today. Even when they had the chance in the WAG 'One Wales' coalition the Plaid Minister of Heritage A.M. Alun Ffred Jones delivered an Owain Glyndŵr Interpretation Plan that denied Owain Glyndwr true 'National Status' to be commemorated Nationally but made him to be more or less a 'Regional Character' only of interest to 'Cymraeg' speaking Cymru as you will see from below:

Further, be mindful of commemorating the Battle of Vyrnwy  24 Medi 1400. Given the latest great Vyrnwy Estate 'Land Grab' it is more pertinent than ever that patriots hold commemoration there annually hence, so that we do not forget that this land is occupied by new 'Robber Barons' of Cheque Book Conquest and Colonisation.

Sunday, July 30, 2006
We suggest you start organising now and do inform us of any events and activities you organise, so that we may publicise to encourage others to organise or to benefit those who wish to attend commemorative events.

Pobl Glyndŵr, wear your 'Rubanau Glyndŵr' with pride on and around 16 Medi - 'Dydd Glyndŵr' annually as a display of respect of the ultimate sacrifice of so many during the cause to regain Independence for Wales.

A word from Gethin ap Gruffydd, Embassy Glyndŵr Researcher:

I was first made aware of Owain Glyndŵr's connection with Corwen and Caerdrewyn when I lived in Ireland in 1970. The enlightenment came via a fellow "Exile" who was also working and living in Dublin at that time.Upon returning to Cymru, I helped establish the COFIWN remembrance movement and, amongst other commemorative events, initiated the first Annual National 'Dydd Glyndŵr' commemoration in Corwen which lasted for 15 years and included the Caerdrewyn walk. The demise of COFIWN also witnessed the demise of these commemorative events and other celebrative activities in Dyffryn Dyfrdwy. However, in 2004 we helped to organise the first 'Dydd Glyndŵr' commemoration with a highly successful programme of celebrative activities.

It is our hope to see Corwen and ‘Gwlad Glyndŵr’ develop as a centre for the National 'Dydd Glyndŵr Festival in Mis Medi. Thus, please Pobl Glyndŵr and other patriots endeavour to cooperate with us in a little Cymric unity and solidarity; the historically correct time for the annual National Glyndŵr Coronation Commemoration at Machynlleth being at ‘Troad y Rhod’ on and around 21 Mehefin - ‘Dydd y Senedd’ annually.

Following on the Council of War which took place at Llys Glyndyfrdwy on 16 Medi 1400, Owain Glyndŵr and his followers from Dyffryn Dyfrdwy, Edeyrnion and other parts of the north east assembled atop Caerdrewyn on the 18th in readiness to launch an attack upon Ruthun which would be the opening military engagement of the Last Great War of Independence 1400 - 16 - 21. Caerdrewyn is a significantly important historic site as it was here, in 1165, that all the Princes of the three "Ancient Kingdoms of the Cymru" assembled as the greatest United Welsh Army ever to defend our homeland from threat of major Invasion and Conquest. If you have never made the walk atop to the Ancient Celtic Hill Fort of Caerdrewyn - is it not time you did so? Perhaps this year is a good time and opportunity - Also, some brave hearts amongst you might want to use the opportunity to do the walk up to ‘Pen y Pigyn’ (Where Glyndŵr is said to have thrown his dagger in anger) to see the local memorial to the 1911 Investiture - Yes! I will repeat that "The 1911 Investiture" not a memorial to their local Prince 
Owain Glyndŵr but a memorial to an "English Pretender Prince of Wales".

Do Remember it's official 'BWRDD YR IAITH' has adopted 16 Medi 'Dydd Owain' (& 11 Rhagfyr Dydd Llywelyn III) and, in theory, Mentrau Iaith Cymru should be pro actively supporting events & activities on these days, as well as organising them ? However, the reality is that some do and some do not? Over the last few years, Menter Iaith Llanrwst has led the way in organising the best local 16 Medi ‘Dydd Glyndŵr’ celebrations. Also, in recent years, the SLEEPING GIANT FOUNDATION has organised a major Owain Glyndŵr festival on Penwythnos Glyndŵr’. What can be done locally? First and foremost carry out a ‘Baner Glyndŵr’ campaign to get your local council to recognise ‘Dydd Glyndŵr’ by flying ‘Baner Glyndŵr’; once you succeed, do let us know so that we can add your success to our ever growing list. Also, likewise, get hotels and businesses to fly ‘Baner Glyndwr’ and inform us of your successes. A great deal more can be done, just use show some initiative and use some imagination but here’s a few ideas:

1: Set up an annual ‘Wythnos Glyndŵr’ Hanes Glyndŵr Exhibition’ at Local Library.
2: Organise an Owain Glyndŵr Day at a local community centre.

3: See if local schools will organise events and activities.

4: Organise Social events and activities.

5: Set up stall in town centre to ‘’show the flag’’, hand out ribbons and distribute literature and sell Glyndŵr products in an ‘Owain Glyndŵr meet the people Initiative’ as a means of publicly promoting the history of Owain Glyndŵr.

6: How’s about an Owain Glyndŵr ‘Life and times’ parade?

If enough interest is demonstrated, we will organise.
