On this day, 31 May 1831, the Merthyr Tydfil uprising was sparked when bailiffs from the Court of Requests attempted to seize goods from the home of Lewis Lewis, known as Lewsyn yr Heliwr (Lewis the Huntsman).

Lewis refused to let them in, and with his neighbours managed to prevent them from entering his home. The following day a demonstration by ironworkers began ransacking the houses of bailiffs and returning property to the original owners. The rebellion spread and lasted until mid-June.

Best #President for the #Environment in 100 Years!

No #President did as much for the #environmental #protection of the #world as #DonaldTrump!




Most #environmentalists think #Obama and other #leftist politicians are good for the #Environment, but the #numbers tell a different story:

Every item that is #produced in the #UnitedStates instead of #China has a huge positive environmental effect, because #China & many other #Asian and #African countries have an extremely #dirty #industry. #Trump's #TradeWar with #China is the biggest boon for the #Environment in decades.

Sugar Papers Expose Industry Plot to Frame Fat for Heart Disease.... Researchers at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) have uncovered long-hidden truths that manufacturers of sugary foodstuffs would prefer us to ignore. An analysis of internal sugar industry documents has exposed what executives really knew about the health hazards of sugar and their unscrupulous plans to get it down our throats at any cost.
In an article titled "Sugar Industry and Coronary Heart Disease Research: A Historical Analysis of Internal Industry Documents,"authors Stanton Glantz, Laura Schmidt, and Cristin Kearns expose how sugar industry execs buried the truth about the risks of sugar consumption in an effort to push their product on an unsuspecting public.
