To: National Assembly for Wales

No to Flint Castle's planned Iron Ring

No to Flint Castle's planned Iron Ring

We ask that you please intervene and prevent the building of this distasteful artwork.

Why is this important?

We the undersigned call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to scrap the proposed plans of building an Iron Ring outside of Flint Castle as we are well aware of the historical significance of Edward I and his so called Iron Ring as a use to subjugate and oppress our people.

We find this extremely disrespectful to the people of Wales and our ancestors who have battled oppression, subjugation and injustice for hundreds of years.

We ask that you please rethink the decision to build this monument and use the money elsewhere.

Flint Castle, Castle Street, Flint

Reasons for signing

  • Cadw - the west of england heritage organisation - needs to stop celebrating invasion and subjugation. Celebrate the industrial heritage of Flint.
  • Apart from the views on subjugation of the Welsh by the English, I think the design is hideous
  • Waste of money!

Thank you to everyone that has signed and shared this petition, it is heartwarming to know that we as a people are united against something that would be so disrespectful to our nation, our ancestors and history.

But we must make our voices heard please keep sharing, keep getting signatures, Edward's Iron Ring will not stand, we will not stand by and allow something which is seen as commemoration to the subjugation and oppression of our people.

Diolch yn fawr iawn, cymru am byth
