NOT WELSH NOT - PUZZLED!



''The teachers who imposed the Welsh Not were Welsh and its imposition would have been done with the agreement of parents''.
see below:



WE CAN NOT DOUBT THE EXISTENCE OF THE 'WELSH NOT' BUT TO BE TRUTHFUL WE CAN NOT DOUBT THAT WITH THE ADVENT OF WELSH NATIONALISM IN THE 20TH CENTURY AND PARTICULALY SINCE RISE OF CULTURAL NATIONALISM SINCE THE 'SIXTIES' THE STORIES OF THE WELSH NOT HAS BEEN USED AS A WEAPON AGAINST ENGLISH RULE, A KIND OF 'ENGLAND NOT'. BUT WHAT HAS PUZZELED ME AND STARTED ME THINKING AS TO REALITIES AND HOME TRUTHS WAS A SCENE IN THE FILM 'HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY'...


.... WHERE A LAD IS BEING CANED FOR SPEAKING ENGLISH AND ON THE WALL IS A PICTURE OF OWEN M. EDWARDS INSPECTOR OF SCHOOLS AND VERY MUCH SEEN AS AN ADVOCATE OF 'CYMRAEG' AND THUS DOES NOT REALLY TALLY WITH AFOREMENTIONED SCENE IN FILM.




FOR GREATER PART OF THE 'WELSH NOT' PERIOD, THE WELSH THEMSELVES WERE IN CHARGE OF WELSH EDUCATION AND SCHOOL CHILDREN WERE BEING TAUGHT BY WELSH TEACHERS, SO WHAT IS GOING ON NOT LEAST IF WE TAKE THE BELOW QUOTE AS AN 'HOME TRUTH'.

''The teachers who imposed the Welsh Not were Welsh and its imposition would have been done with the agreement of parents''.
see below:

THE PERIOD OF THE 'WELSH NOT' WAS FOR MOST PART A CREATION OF THE LATTER YEARS OF THE 19TH CENTURY INTO EARLY YEARS OF THE 20TH CENTURY. THOUGH ANTI - CYMRAEG SENTIMENTS FOLLOWED THE 1831 MERTHYR RISING WHEN 'CYMRAEG' SPOKEN BY A MONOGLOT POPULATION WAS DEEMED AS CONTRIBUTING TO THE RISING:



THIS CONTRIBUTED TO WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE 'BLUE BOOKS':


BUT THIS DID NOT MOTIVATE THE 'WELSH NOT' THAT WAS LARGELLY DUE TO THE RISE OF 'LIBERAL' WELSH CAPITALISM AS RECOGNISED BY DAVID DAVIES:


WHO SEEN WAY FORWARD FOR WELSH PEOPLE WAS IN RUNNING THEIR OWN 'INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION' AND CAME TO PROMOTE BY STATING ''IF YOU WANT ONLY TO EAT BREAD SPEAK WELSH ONLY BUT IF YOU WANT TO EAT BREAD AND BUTTER LEARN ENGLISH''. OF COURSE THIS SIMPLY IMPLIED THAT THE INDUSTRIAL WORLD OF HIS TIMES WORKED THROUGH ENGLISH INTERNATIONALLY. IN THIS HE WAS BACKED BYEDUCATIONALIST SIR HUGH OWEN:



SIR HUGH OWENS CONTRUBUTION TO THE 'ENGLISH LANGUAG' PROMOTION IN WALES:



FOR A SHORT WHILE THIS ALL LED TO A NATIVE WELSH CAPITALISM BACKED UP BY NON - CONFORMITY IN RELIGION AND POLITICALLY BY CYMRU FYDD BUT IN IT'S CONCLUSION MADE 'CAMBRIAN BRITISHNESS' THE NORM AND AS MUCH FAVOURABLE TO ENGLISH RULE. SO WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE US REGARDS THE 'WELSH NOT', NEEDING A FULL ON REASSESSMENT MAYBE, IN RELATION TO MUCH BEING TURNED ON A CULTURAL HEAD WITH SINCE THE 'SIXTIES' RISE OF 'Y CRACHACH NEWYDD' WHICH FOR A NATIVE MIDDLE CLASS MINORITY MEANS SOCIAL AND FINNANCIAL CULTURAL ADVANCEMENT BUT IN MAIN GRANT FUNDED AND CREATES A 'CULTURAL ELITE, CONTROLLERS OF MUCH IN MODERN WELSH LIFE AND POLITICS TO THEIR ADVANTAGE AND WILL NOT ADVANCE WELSH INDEPENDANCE?

    4 TACHWEDD 1839 - NEWPORT RISING

    adfywiad1.rssing.com
    Red Resurgence Cymru advocates and promotes Socialist Agit - Prop Action: Campaigns and Struggles in Wales in support of all 'Brothers and Sisters of the Ox' and the 'Wretched of the Earth' at Home and Abroad. We follow on from Cymru Goch I in an International Welsh Socialist Libertarian Tradition, taking aboard for further inspiration 'Class War'seeking to advance 'CRACH WAR' against the old establishment 'Taffia' and Y Crachach Newydd - England's Neo Colonial Client Tribe in Wales.
    MEANWHILE POSSIBLY ANOTHER MORE CONTEMPORARY'' WELSH RISING'' OF A
    SWANSEA JAC NEW 'ALT RIGHT' WELSH PARTY, IF THEY CAN FIND A ROOM TO HOLD A MEETING BUT FROM ALL THE COMMENTS TO THIS, METHINKS IT WILL JUST BE ANOTHER TALKING SHOP OF THE FB PATHETIC 'CILMERI' FRINGE OF RABID RIGHT OF CENTRE WELSH NATIONALISM BUT POSSIBLY MORE OF A CHALLENGE TO PLAID CYMRU THAN THE LIKES OF HAWLIAU, BALCHDER CYMRU AND CYMRU SOFREN. SO, MAYBE NOT A BAD THING BUT DO NOT EXPECT THIS CREW TO BE UP FOR ANY REAL FIGHT BACK OF ANY KIND, LIKE I SAID ANOTHER TALKING SHOP. I  DO NOT PARTICULARLY SUPPORT YES CYMRU BUT AT LEAST THEY ARE ACTIVE ON THE STREET!








    MEANWHILE WHAT OF CATALONIA IS THEIR INDEPENDENCE GOING ANYWHERE?




    http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/catalonia-independence-spain-rajoy-franco-europe-eu-a8015271.html


    ALTOGETHER THE NEWS OF THE INDEPENDENCE STRUGGLE IN CATALONIA JUST MAKES ME MINDFULL OF WELSH REALISTIC 'HOME TRUTHS' THAT WELSH INDEPENDENCE IS JUST NOT ON MUCH A LOST CAUSE BUT STILL PERHAPS INSTEAD OF ALL THESE FB WELSH NAT INDEPENDENCE FANTASIES,TO MOVE FORWARD WE NEED ONE WELSH REPUBLICAN FRONT - PLATFORM.



    HOWEVER HAS WELSH NATIONALISM JUST FAILED TO FIGHT BACK AND WOULD WELSH REPUBLICANISM DO ANY BETTER?

    CATALONIAN - DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE OR A FUDGE - CLIMB DOWN. WHATEVER >





    ....... I AM SOMEWHAT AMAZED AS WERE MOST CATALAN ACTIVISTS WHO ARE NOT STUPID AND IGNORANT OF FACT THAT HAVING PUT UP WITH SPANISH OBSTINATE ARROGANCE OVER MANY YEARS NOT LEAST SINCE 2015 ARE WELL AWARE THAT SPAIN ARE NOT GOING TO SOFTEN UP ON ANY DELAYS OF ENACTING A DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. CATALAN LEADER Carles Puigdemont MISSED THE MOMENT AND THAT COULD BE IT - GAME OVERFOR CATLAN INDEPENDENCE?


    THE PROBLEM NOW IS TO KEEP ALIVE TRUST IN THE CATALAN PARTY AND PARLIAMENT WITH ANYWAY SUCH A STRONG SPANISH REPRESENTATION AND NOW THAT THE LEFT CATALAN PARTIES HAVE LEFT UNTILL INDEPENDENCE IS DCLARED FOR REAL! HAVING SPENT A YEAR BUILDING UP STRONG ENTHUIASTIC SUPPORT OF ACTIVISTS AND LEADING THEM INTO A REFERENDUM THAT TURNED VERY VICIOUS WILL THE SAME ACTIVISTS BE WILLING TO BE LED UP THE HILL AGAIN? IF Carles Puigdemont HAD GONE FOR IT AND NOT CAVED IN TO THE MADRID GOVERNMENT AND THE EU WITH MADRID THEN TAKING AWAY CATALAN AUTONOMY AND ARRESTING CATALAN PARLIMENTARIANS ALONG WITH SENDING INTO CATALONIA 1000'S OF CIVIL GUARDS AND SOLDIERS THIS WOULD HAVE AROUSED ACTIVISTS INTO A CATALAN INSURRECTION HARD TO PACIFY WITH WORLD ATTENTION STILL VERY MUCH FOCUSED ON SPANISH AGGRESSION. NOW WORLD MEDIA ATTENTION IS SLIPPING AWAY AND POSSIBLE CATALAN ACTIVISM ON THE WANE - WE SHALL SEE BUT I AM NOT OPPTIMISTIC? AS FOR CYMRU/WALES AND INDEPENDENCE >
    DESPITE A POSSIBLY ROMANTIC BELIEF THAT OUR INDEPENDENCE IS POSSIBLE, I SOME WHAT DOUBT IT. CAN WE HONESTLY CONSIDER OUR COUNTRY A 'CELTIC CATALONIA' AND BE AS IRELAND 1916 - 22?




    DOUBT IT! WE HAD OUR CHANCE IN THE 'SIXTIES' BUT THERE WAS NOT A GREAT DEAL OF SUPPORT FOR A RADICAL ACTIVIST LIBERATION STRUGGLE >

    BUT FOR A FEW WILLING TO FIGHT FOR FREEDOM >






    WILL THE SPIRIT OF THE 'SIXTIES' RISE AGAIN? A POTENTIAL SIGN THIS MAY BE POSSIBLE COULD BE SEEN IN CAERNARFON SOON ENOUGH BUT I DOUBT IT, THE WHITE EAGLE OF WELSH RESISTANCE HAS HAD IT'S FEATHERS PLUCKED
     >

     WHAT WE NEED IS A WELSH GARIBALDI TO LEAD US FORWARD>

     OR A LEWIS LEWIS IN THE SPIRIT OF 1831 RISING >





    BUT DOUBT IF SUCH IS TO BE, AS I DOUBT IF YES CYMRU WILL GET ANYWHERE >




    NOR 'SWANSEA JAC' (NOT KNOWN FOR ANY ACTIVISM) AND HIS NEW PARTY AKA ALTRIGHT PATRIOTIC POPUlISM >







    JAC AS MOST NATIONALISTS DID DO ARISE WITH GUTS AND DETIRMINATION TO DEFEND MYNYDD Y GWAIR AND HIS RECORD IN THE 'SIXTIES' DESPITE WEARING MEDALS AT RALI CILMEDRI DID NOT STAND FOR MUCH >




    NEITHER AS WELSH REPUBLICANISM ARISE POST GARETH LOCKWOOD >






    SO WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE US, WITH WELSH SOCIALISM PERHAPS? >
