The new Wales

What, then, is the political remedy? Precisely that which was applied to Ireland, Canada and Australi, viz., a Parliament with full power to organize the internal structure and to determine the foreign relations of the country. The official name given to this power is Dominion Status, and nothing short of this will satisfy us.

The end of Britishness

Who defends Wales? Nobody can sincerely claim that she is defended by the British Conservative or the British Labour Party. On the contrary. One party has been built for that purpose. In all Welsh history Plaid Cymru has been the only independent Welsh political party. It fights day in day out for Wales, that is the purpose of its existence, and it strives for justice and freedom. It is the only hope of Wales. If it should fail, then this ancient nation has no national future.

A Question of Names


Joan Fuster was one of the most important Catalan intellectuals of the 20th Century. “A Question of Names” defended the idea that the Valencia region, the Principality of Catalonia, the Balearic Islands and Northern Catalonia all form part of the same nation, since they share the same history, culture and language. He proposed adopting “The Catalan Countries” as a name which would express this national unity.

The democratic bankruptcy happens in Galicia, on the approach of a Galician political alternative. And it is not enough to formulate it in the abstract, is needed to provide it with specific minimum content.

The Treaty of Trianon was the peace agreement signed in 1920, at the end of World War I, between the Allies of World War I and Hungary (a successor state to Austria-Hungary). The treaty greatly redefined and reduced Hungary's borders. From its borders before World War I, it lost 72% of its territory, which was reduced from 325,111 square kilometres (125,526 sq mi) to 93,073 square kilometres (35,936 sq mi). 

It also lost 64% of its total population, which was reduced from 20.9 million to 7.6 million, and 31% (3.3 out of 10.7 million) of its ethnic Hungarians, who suddenly found themselves living outside the newly defined borders of Hungary. Hungary lost five of its ten most populous cities and was deprived of direct access to the sea and of some of its most valuable natural resources. 

The principal beneficiaries of territorial adjustment were Romania, Czechoslovakia, and the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. In addition, the newly established state of Hungary had to pay war reparations to its neighbours. The Hungarian delegation signed the treaty under protest on 4 June 1920 at the Grand Trianon Palace in Versailles, France. 

Transylvania and other Hungarian territories like Bánság, Kőrösvidék and Máramaros were attached to Romania. 

“Transylvanism” is an ideological movement created in 1921 by Károly Kós, a polymath leader (architect, writer and publisher) of the Hungarian minority. He urged for political loyalty towards the new ruler of Transylvania, the Romanian state, without giving up the Hungarian cultural identity. His manifesto called “Crying Word” (a clear reference to the biblical phrase of “The Voice of One Crying”, or “Kiáltó szó” in Hungarian) became an important guide of consolation for the loss of the mother country, and an ideology to re-organize the Transylvanian Hungarian community.
