P-05-772 No to Flint Castle's planned Iron Ring



This petition was submitted by Gerwyn David Evans, having collected 11,091 signatures online.


Petition text:

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.



This petition was considered completed by the Petitions Committee at its meeting on 09/01/2018. Members considered correspondence from the Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Transport and agreed to close the petition in light of the confirmation received that the iron ring artwork will not go ahead.  In doing so, Members wished to congratulate the petitioners on the success of the campaign.

It was first considered by the Petitions Committee on 19/09/2017.
