Current Wessex (Red), Re-Unified Wessex (Blue)

The Wessex Re-Unification Movement is a political movement that intends to re-unify the entire territory of the Kingdom of Wessex to its state before the 1532 Tudor Conquest by the Kingdom of England. In 1806, the modern state of Wessex lost a large swathe of its territory in the Peace Treaty. The United Kingdom wanted to keep such territories to be able to have significant access to the English Channel and nearby France during the Napoleonic Wars. 

The region in question, consists of the English counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Kent, Essex, Sussex and Surrey, which to this day still have significant Wessen populations, and Wessen Language usage, including traditional Wessen spirituality. 

While the issue has been low-lying in the 20th century, it has become increasingly more important since 2004, with the 2006 Protest, and in October 2013, a British Prime Minister and a Wessen Jylpminnod, met regarding the subject for the first time since the unsuccessful meeting in 2006 to discuss the issue. In the meeting, both nations agreed to work together on the issue, and continue talks about re-unification. However, serious issues including difficult economic, lingual, and cultural integration have been brought up, due to Wessex's unique economic system. 

Organisations

While there are few specific organiations devoted to re-unification, there are many which support such an action. In Wessex, two of the three major parties, the Knutist Party and the Green Party of Wessex have stated that they support re-unification in their recent manifestos. In the United Kingdom, the Liberal Democrat Party has also stated they support re-unification, along with the British Nationalist Party. 

The main organisation that is devoted to the re-unification movement, is the pressure group, Anés Wessex. Which is affiliated with Greenpeace. The group have been behind many of the protests regarding the issue, most famously the 2006 protest held in Bristol and London. 

National Support

Wessex

In the Wessex, the two major parties in the Witanegmot, have stated they support re-unification, and have had it as a major aspect of their manifestos since the 1970's. Many Jylpminnods have stated they were behind the idea, however this had not been put into practice. In October 2013, Jylpminnod Mathan-Britan stated she was fully behind the notion to hold talks with the United Kingdom and further the cause. 

United Kingdom

There is significant support within the region in question. A poll taken in 2012, found that over 56% of the population of these regions were in favour of re-unification. The United Kingdom Government, announced on the 13th October 2013, at a meeting between David Cameron and Dawna Mathan-Britan, that they were open to negotiations on the subject.
