Completed petition No to the proposed Iron Ring at Flint Castle

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.
