    Notes from the meeting

    1. Non- payment of bills as a protest of non – delivery of expectations of service.
      • Can still ‘pay’ it into a different account ready to pay when meet responsibilities.
      • Needs a critical mass ‘nation-wide’
      • Very Public direct action
    2. What do we want?

      • Speed up their timescales.
      • Ask politician’s to force + invest government money

      • Dwr Cymru not taking suitable action to protect rivers for future generations
      • Use FWG Act , cost of delay onto future generations.
    4. Legal action against NRW

    Suggest we start off by writing to our Synoed members highlighting our concerns and asking them what their party intends to do. We could also ask them if they will receive a Save the Teifi stone to sit on their desk in Cardiff.

    I’d like to set up a petition to urge the Senedd to do something. Apparently they won’t even look at any petitions from places such as Change.org – though we could get one on there too? It would be a simple call to action for people as we spread awareness.

    I have set up a petition on the Senedd’s website- which should be live in the next few days  – to petition for proper funding of NRW and a more stringent approach to holding them to account. I’ll post the link here and on the FB page when I have confirmation that it’s live.

     

    Here’s the link to the petition https://petitions.senedd.wales/petitions/245501?fbclid=IwAR3UbCf3sHVihjg1hSbbd7hkkAmizieCdMunqmvpSk_JCgaE-pd4p62vBjM – 1253 signatures as of 16-Nov-23

    There is now a template for a letter/email to send to the Senedd – see https://www.teifi.one/actions#Action-3-Write-to-WG-Senedd

    I’d like to start a  petition – a specific call to action for people. Planning on getting the leaflets around but I think we need something definite for people to get the ball rolling – it’s also easy to disseminate across social media.

    My priority would be to make sure that it’s asking the Sennedd to do something they can actually do! Even if we reach the required 10,000 signatures – easily done I think – if we’re not asking for something they could actually achieve it will be thrown out.

    Ok, just found this

    https://petitions.senedd.wales/help

    which says you need to use the Sennedd’s own petition system. They won’t accept from other sites – eg Change.org? And they’ll only deal with matters they can deal with – so I guess DC’s issues are DC’s. We’d need to phrase it right.

    Petition guidelines:

    Here’s a petition regarding the situation on the Usk. This one was taken to committee stage in March of this year but no further action was taken as they considered the matter already being dealt with adequately by the Rural affairs Committee and Dŵr Cymru!

    I’m happy to set my name to a petition but I’d like to brainstorm the right wording.

    So, here are the rules for petitioning the Senedd, along with a recent one submitted re the Usk. I think we;d need to really think about wording and try to target a specific area, a definite call to action rather than just ‘save the river’. Ideas?

    There’s a page for guidelines for petitions to the Senedd

    https://senedd.wales/senedd-business/petitions/standards-for-petitions/

    and here

    https://petitions.senedd.wales/rules

    This is the closest example in topic that i can find on the recent petitions page, regarding the Usk. If you look at the rejection notes it was decided that the actions planned by DC and plans by the Rural Affairs group were enough.

    So we need to really think about the wording and what angle we want to take.

    And I’m sure we could get a lot more than 1612 signatures
