🧵 1/5 Welsh Twitter hive mind I need your help!

I'm on a quest and I've reached a dead end...

This is my Dad with the Bardic Chair he made for the National Eisteddfod in 1972.

#wales #cymru
2/5 He's turning 70 this year and would love to know where the chair is now, and tell the owners a secret about it that they may not know.

The 1972 chair was won by Parch Dafydd Owen for the poem Preselau. This is him, sitting in the chair. (Doesn't he look like a lovely man?)
3/5 We believe he was from Abersoch originally, and studied at Bangor University, but when he won the chair he was a priest in Brynamman (or Ammanford). (Thank you to the librarians at @NLWales for that piece of info.)

He may have had a son and daughter called Gareth and Sian.

As you can see from the figures Welsh child admissions doubled in 4 months since the return to schools.

Of the 16 young 0-9 that needed critical care 13 were in those 4 months.

@PublicHealthW Transparency is a mark of integrity.
Every nation in the UK provides Child Covid Admission data and deaths yet PHW appears to withhold these until an FOI is issued. Please can we have the data on the dashboard as standard ?

This thread provides the facts to prove unequivocally that The Abolish the Welsh Assembly Party is a #farright, racist party - overflowing with violent, racist and extremist members and supporters #Senedd21 #seneddelection #Savewales #WeareAbolish #senedd2021

Martyn Ford (candidate 4 #CynonValley & 4 South #Wales Central) "condemns diversity" was the author of this horifically racist leaflet when he was a member of another far-right party - UKIP @VikkiHowells

James Cole has been selected by the Party as candidate for #Swansea West after making this racist white supremacist 'great replacement theory' diatribe! @JulieJamesMS @DaiLloydAS  @ChohanSamantha

We LOVED this piece published by @galdemzine
on the #independence campaign in #Scotland called "Is support growing for a radical, anti-racist independent #Scotland🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿?"…

#Cymru #Annibyniaeth #CelticPOC #YrAlban #AUOB
It is absolutely integral that discourses open up on conversations like this- independence is a crucial issue in Scotland in Wales. However, most conversations refuse to look at topics like racism, anti racism, state violence, incarceration, and failures of devolution for PoC
"A poll by Awaz FM, Scotland’s leading Asian radio, showed that 64% of listeners were intending to vote Yes. There is a collective voice emerging from Scotland’s PoC, and its support for independence is becoming increasingly clear."

We need info on this in #Wales, too!

When #Wales is independent, we want....

1⃣ huge levels of support for asylum seekers, refugees and people without recourse to public funds
2⃣ongoing efforts to minimise institutional racism in #Wales (including attainment gaps, incarceration etc)
3⃣Fully bilingual schools
4⃣better representation of BAME people in public life, including elected BAME representatives at the Senedd, at council level et
5⃣sustainable alternatives for our future, and positive action on climate change and global warming
6⃣greater development of Welsh public life
7⃣free childcare
8⃣free Welsh language lessons for everyone in #Wales, including bursaries for e.g. those on lower incomes to purchase equipment, or a childcare scheme to support parents

The world lost Richard Burton - Wales' greatest actor - today in 1984.

A few years ago I made the pilgrimage to his grave in Céligny, Switzerland, where the boy from Port Talbot was buried in a patriotic red suit with a copy of Dylan Thomas' poems.

RIP Rich.

Here's a photo of Richard Burton's grave in the old cemetery in Céligny, Switzerland.
Notice the small photo of Elizabeth Taylor which somebody placed next to the flowers before my visit. Image

This is a Hungarian poem about Wales, All Hungarian children are taught it in school...

A Walesi Bárdok / The Welsh Bards

Edward the king, the English king,
Bestride his tawny steed,
"For I will see if Wales," said he,
"Accepts my rule indeed.
"Are stream and mountain fair to see?
Are meadow grasses good?
Do corn-lands bear a crop more rare
Since wash'd with rebel's blood?

"And are the wretched people there,
Whose insolence I broke
As happy as the oxen are
Beneath the driver's yoke?
"In truth this Wales, Sire, is a gem,
The fairest in your crown:
The stream and field rich harvest yield,
And fair and dale and down.

"And all the wretched people there
Are calm as man could crave;
Their hovels stand throughout the land
As silent as the grave."

This part of the piece looks at the experiences of Hadji Mohamed, who is an Imam. We reported on him yesterday. He lives in #HomefrayStreet in #Cardiff when the rioters came to his house. He clambered up a drainpipe.

1. On Friday 6th June 1919, there was a #RaceRiot in the city of #Newport in #Gwent, #SouthWales. What happened in #Newport had a huge overwhelming effect on #RaceRelations for years to come. Here's a clipping from @nytimes about the #riot
