1/ FiLiA is driven by the passion + dedication of its team.

Our annual event is unfunded and organised by volunteers. In 2019 we measured the Woman-hours that made FiLiA happen ... 8,344! It's more now, as FiLiA has grown.

Some things along the way ...
2/ We took FiLiA out of London to reach more Women and to grow the movement. Our CEO moves every year to hear from and engage local Women.

We gained charitable status.

We started the Friends of FiLiA scheme to support Women to participate in FiLiA.…
3/ We've held FiLiA in #London #Manchester #Bradford #Portsmouth

1,350 tickets were sold last year. We anticipate that #FiLiA2022 in #Cardiff will be even bigger

So far Women from 62 countries have made their way to FiLiA to speak.

'the story ... is how “trans activists” and their “allies” have actively prevented FiLiA from doing grassroots work to benefit the #women and #girls of #Portsmouth - with the complicity of local institutions and elected representatives.'


'A year-long series, which FiLiA was due to run alongside the Play Youth Community youth groups within @portsmouthtoday , working with #girls excluded or at risk of being excluded from school was #cancelled.'


'The @BritishRedCross individual refused to share details of the events with local #women and lobbied other service providers to also boycott them, again based on spurious accusations of “#transphobia”.'

This is a brilliant thread 🧵by @uglygame

A fraudster with a shady #Crypto company looking to invest in football clubs (#PerthGlory / #Nantes)

It's a great tale - It also links to some seriously questionable characters...

The link is #AlanJohnFrankHitchins

#Portsmouth & #AstonVilla fans may have seen his name before.

Think mining scams, laundering money via offshore & criminal networks…
Mining scams can be a brilliant way to con investors (pump & dump) and because of their erratic revenue streams & international make-up, they can be great vehicles to launder money through.

Maybe if you've just robbed a bank and need a getaway vehicle 💸…

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

FLOOD advisories are up due to heavy rain coming down. Watch out for water buildup and areas near creeks, rivers and streams.

#13newsnow #13weather Image
FLASH FLOOD WARNING for #Chesapeake, #Norfolk and #Portsmouth neighbors until 5:15pm.

This heavy rain is expected to raise water levels quickly (if it hasn't already).

Let me know where you're seeing flooding.
#13newsnow Image
Here are radar estimated rainfall over the past hour within the flash flood warning area -- 1.0-2.0 inches. Y'all be careful - lightning is also moving through and I just had my power flicker

1/12. Welcome to the #SolentHarbours virtual #LowTideTrail around #FortonLake. This creek has an amazing number of vessels (around 30) from barges and lifeboats, to fishing vessels and military craft.

We hope you will enjoy #archaeology from home during the COVID crisis.
2/12. Forton Lake is actually a tidal creek, meaning that the water comes and goes each day. It’s fed by sea water coming in from #PortsmouthHarbour. As the tide goes out, the skeletons of abandoned vessels are revealed in the mud. Forton Lake is about 1km in length and 150m wide
3/12. The collection spans over 100 years with boats dating from the 1800’s through to the 1960’s. There are 3 wooden barges, 2 ferries, 2 lifeboats, 3 fishing vessels, 9 military vessels & 4 unclassified vessels.

Great to be at @PortsmouthPort to see veterans disembark the @PoppyLegion cruise ship. They’ll be sat watching the Queen, @realDonaldTrump and other dignitaries in Southsea Common, but in my mind are the real VIPs in #Portsmouth today. @GMB #Dday75
Thanks to the team @PortsmouthPort and @BrittanyFerries for their help this morning. Would loved to have stayed longer but we’re now off to Normandy for more D-Day filming.

We’re now crossing the channel, heading to Normandy. Onboard are a number of ‘re enactors’, complete with uniforms and vehicles. The view leaving Portsmouth hasn’t changed too much in 75 years - for many unfortunate souls back then it was their last sight of England. #DDay75 @GMB

Beautiful morning in #Portsmouth ahead of #DDay75 commemorations. The sacrifice of so many remembered in a service on Southsea Common. Hundreds of veterans will be joined by the Queen, @realDonaldTrump and others. Public will have to watch on screens behind security barriers.
Was an honour to meet Harold Smithard - now 94. As a 19 year old Able Seaman he was on one of the first troop carriers to arrive on the Normandy coast. He doesn’t want Presidents or Prime Ministers at today’s event - says they’ve turned it into a political stunt.
Leader of Portsmouth City Council @geraldvjuk is keen the spotlight falls on veterans and not high profile guests. He wanted the public to be able to meet and greet the veterans today. The city is hosting more #DDay75 events this week where that should be possible.
