I've tuned into the webinar from @MerchedCymru, @LGBAllies_Cymru and @WomensRightsNet on #RSE #RSEWales

Scene being set... Huge challenges with sexual harassment in schools as per @EstynHMI report and @WelshGovernment's RSE code fails to tackle these.
Stephanie Davies Arai @cwknews speaking first.
Children being exposed to porn and gender identity ideology online and in life.
Link being made between toxic messages girls receiving and deciding to opt-out of becoming women.
Change of language has happened. GIRES presenting gender identity as innate.
Now looking at resources for teens eg. Gender Identity Workbook for Teens, 'Gender Quest' Workbook, all encouraging kids to interpret their lives through gender lens (likes, hobbies etc).
Good grief.

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

#DidYouKnow that #Wales🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 is 6% #Black, #Asian and #Minority #Ethnic? In 2011, this was 4%, and has grown by 2% over the past 9 years.
Over 50% of #Wales lives in or around Cardiff, Newport or Swansea...

#Cardiff is 20.6% #BAME
#Swansea is 10.8% #BAME
#Newport is 13.1% #BAME Image
We are a Welsh language speaking team of #PeopleofColour who have seen how conversations on race, ethnicity, and diversity are minimised because #Wales is "Only 4% #Black, #Asian and #Minority #Ethnic".

Here are some clippings about the #Cardiff1919Raceriots in the The Cambria Daily Leader. This is in today's edition, Saturday 14th June 1919

Here's some more information about the #CambriaLeader. It's published in #Swansea, so these are a screenshot I took from @LLGCymru online because i haven't managed to make it to #Swansea today

#DidYouKnow that the word Cambria comes from #Latin🇮🇹? It's a romanised version of the word #Cymru that was used by the Romans

In the early part of the first millennium CE, the #IndoEuropean language known as Proto-#Germanic diverged into an East branch (which included #Gothic) and a Northwest branch.

Northwest then split into West and North branches when Proto-#Norse developed in #Scandinavia. Image
Until the 8th century, #Germanic #languages, including Proto-#Norse, were written in Elder Futhark, the earliest #runic #alphabet.

The name #Futhark comes from the initial phonemes in the names of the first six #runes:
ᚠ ᚢ ᚦ ᚨ ᚱ ᚲ
F U Þ A R K

By the beginning of the #Viking Age around 800 CE, Proto-#Norse had evolved into Old Norse, and #Scandinavia's writing system transitioned from the 24 #runes of Elder #Futhark to Younger Futhark's 16 runes.

The #Swedish #Sparlösa #Runestone from ~800 CE features both #alphabets. Image

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
