Save The Vulcan! - Mike Cridland

I must confess I have neither followed this particular cause nor supported it as I should. The Vulcan one of Cardiff’s oldest working pubs. It is scheduled to be demolished June 25th according to a report in the South Wales Echo . There has been a very active campaign by a group of devoted followers who have enlisted the support of numerous celebrities, including Leonard Nimoy and Scott Quintero who play “Spock” from Star Trek (Which I was dubious of because its almost impossible to get past their agents)

I believe that a historical building that was built during Cardiff's time as the coal capital of the world should be saved. It should be saved for the same reasons that Cardiff Castle or Llandaff cathedral should be saved. We owe it to our children to see all eras of Cardiff's history from the time of the Roman occupation right up to the 21st Century. This is a part of what I would be called "the People's History".

My own suggestion would be if all else fails. Then direct action should be taken. In other words on demolition day the Vulcan should be occupied by those who wish to see it saved. I only wish I could be there. This would give Mr Rapport terrible publicity. And could stop the demolition! Just get the media there!

Save the Vulcan!
