Remembering Chris Rees 1931 – 2001

Chris Rees at the Plaid Conference


We remember the hero Chris Rees (1931-2001), a native of Swansea who suffered a year’s gaol sentence for his stand against conscription by the London government. Pioneer of the Wlpan system of teaching the Welsh language and veteran of elections as Plaid Cymru candidate.  He would be 90 today, 6 January, 2021.  Photo by the late Alcwyn Deiniol with Chris Rees on the left, Gwynfor and Rhiannon Evans and Winifred Ewing, SNP, with thanks to Rhoswen.
