Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr/ Great Unrest Group celebrates the Merthyr Uprising in 1831 a defining point in Welsh History when the Welsh Working Class in open rebellion announced itself on the world stage.
The raising of the Red Flag on Hirwaun Common was a symbolic act of national and class defiance from the new Welsh Working Class.
The Red Flag was the gift of the Welsh Working Class to the workers of the World just has workers in the USA and in particular Chicago gave the world's workers day May Day.
Gifts of working class struggle are the most precious and the new generation needs to learn to honour them.
We at the Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr/ Great Unrest Group seek the renewal of the spirit of resistance at Hirwaun Common in Wales in 2015 and call for a Welsh Socialist Republican Congress in 2015 to re-energise and reinvigorate the movement for social and national liberation in Wales.
Let the message of resistance from Merthyr in 1831 ring our across Wales and the World, We have a Wales to win - we have a World to win.
Hold the Red Flag high beyond the reach of our enemies and false friends, the battle for the 21st Century is just opening and by rectifying our past mistakes we will speed capitalism's demise - socialism is the future, its day is dawning as the 21st century progresses.
Support the call for the Welsh Socialist Republican Congress ensure the fighting sprit of Hirwaun Common Lives on !
