After the #MetPolice tried & failed to frame me & after ex #MetPoliceUK turned private investigators @Surelock_ tried & failed to frame me & my mum, attempt number 3 was #EE & #UKMail. I had never used @EE but they made me their customer

#SwitchtoO2 #o2 #Vodafone #Three #LBC
#EE said I had ordered mobile phones & sim cards & #UKMail said they had delivered them to me (with me showing my passport) at home. I did neither. I didn't order any mobiles & I didn't receive any mobiles. It was a complete stitch up

1. Here's what's happened on the first day of the #CardiffRaceRiots:

Wednesday 11th June 1919 was the hottest day of the year☀️. At 10pm 🕙 a group of people in vehicle on #EastCanalWharf near #CustomHouseStreet.
2. The vehicle had a number of people in there. There were men of colour and their white wives. It got a considerable amount of attention from a group of white men on the street when it reached Cahanal Parade Bridge. A police constable arrived at the scene

#CardiffRaceRiots1919
3. And then, another break of coloured men and their wives arrived in #Cardiff Central. Sometime during this commotion, some of the people exited the vehicles on #CanalParadeBridge in #CardiffCentral to the extremely hostile crowd.

A black man has been accosted on the street by a white man called Frederick H Longman. He accosted a man called Charles Emmanuel. He's French and from the #WestIndies. He also used to be a soldier.

You can't just kick off at someone because you're a soldier when they're a solider too, what's that all about? Enough space for all of us here like
Shit, Frederick just turned around to Emmanuel and he goes "Oh, why don't you walk down your own street?"

If you go to @GlamArchives, there's a wealth of information about the 1919 race riots in #Newport, #Cardiff and #Barry. Loads, and loads, and loads.

We visited recently to learn our history for ourselves. Here's a piece about the #aftermath of the #1919RaceRiots in #Newport
It reads "#NEWPORT RIOT SEQUEL COLOURED MAN WHO SIDED WITH WHITES

A further echo of the disturbances at Newport was heard at the local police court on Friday, when 24 coloured men+7 white men were brought up on various charges, including unlawful assembling and rioting
in George Street, #CommericalRoad+#RuperraStreet and assaulting police constable Nancarrow and various other people. One of the coloured defendants had fought with the Monmouthshire regiment in the war

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
2. As @renireni pointed out in Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race:

"Riots always seem to kick off in the summer." 🔥🔥🔥

In 1919, there were riots in:

🔸#Chicago
🔸#Baltimore
🔸#Omaha
🔸#Newport
🔸#Liverpool

+ and more

#Cymraeg #History #Cymru #Hanes
3. According to the #history, a #black man insulted a #white woman in #Newport, which lead to an altercation. It kicked off in #GeorgeStreet [see below], where 3000 white people formed into a mob and attacked the houses of the two black people on the street.

The first-ever UK court case against police use of #FacialRecognition tech on our streets starts tomorrow.

South Wales Police has used the rights-abusing, discriminatory tech on the public over 50 times. We’re going to put an end to it.

#ResistFacialRec
#FacialRecognition cameras are light-years away from regular CCTV. They scan everyone within range and make unique biometric maps of their faces - more like a fingerprint than a photograph.
The biometric maps made by #FacialRecognition cameras are then matched against watch lists the police put together. These lists can include entirely innocent people. In 2017, the tech was used to target people with mental health conditions. theguardian.com/technology/201…

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their jobs properly & then decided to take the law into their own hands. The result of this decision has led to events stranger than fiction

#BBCNews #Skynews #Itvnews #Channel4News #ThisMorning #TheresaMay #UKGov #LBC
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change
