BBC Wales has this feature on the bombing of the dam site at Capel Celyn. One of the bombers Owain Williams says:
“Do you sit back at home watching telly, or do you go out in the snow and do something for your country?
He refutes assertions about ‘violence’ saying:
“I’m not happy with the use of the term violence because violence was being used against people in Capel Celyn.”
He said for the villagers, losing their homes, school, chapel, and having their relatives’ remains moved from the graveyard was hugely traumatic.
“Some of them died of actual broken hearts, but no-one talks about that,” he said.
The personal price paid by those who took direct action in Wales has been matched in other Celtic countries such as Mann, Scotland and Breizh.
