Chris P has sent over news about a new upcoming event at OTTA (Over The Top Adventures) who are based in Anglesey. The event is going to be held from the 11th to the 13th of March so if you’re local, or even not so local and looking for something active and engaging to do for the weekend why not give them a shout and book a place? Here’s the blurb about the event:
BATTLE WEEKEND 11th – 13th March
The small island of Anglesey off the west coast of Wales won its independence in 2002 and for a short time was a hotspot of revolt whilst groups struggled for political power. In Feb 2004 a small group of farmers attacked and burned the military air field at Valley. They were arrested by the authorities and charged. The riots that followed caused a split across the island with the newly formed Mons Liberation Front (MLF) causing terrorist atrocities across the island and mainland. A civil war ensued until The UN sent in peace keepers and the “Green line” was drawn across the island. A relative peace followed but in a small area near Amlwch in the north of the island an argument ensued over land rights and the peace in this area at least, was under threat.
Government troops of the Anglesey Republican Army (ARA) have moved into position to the south of this small area with the MLF to the north. A stretch of “No mans” land is all that keeps the two forces apart.
