The objectives of the party were:

  • The right for Wales to control its own natural resources.
  • Running in local, town and county elections.

In 2014 Morris launched a campaign to stop the Union Flag being flown more prominently than the Welsh flag on public buildings, particularly the Town Hall in Fishguard, Pembrokeshire.[1]

In 2015 Plaid Glyndŵr launched an online petition to stop people from outside Wales being given social housing before local people.[2]
