Of course the song below can inspire if you think you are brave, and know something of suffering... but keep your heart and soul intact... because you are the son or daughter of a miner; yet the film above will inspire you and touch you and help you understand so much more.
The Miners' NextStep
In 1912 - this year that will be 110 years ago - some of the best minds in Wales met and produced a pamphlet:- 'The Miners' Next Step' to guide miners to a better world, so working people can build a future without parasites or back-stabbers, or bosses, or short-sighted greed.
Just like the people of Donbass, who, before Russia's revolution, lived in the Free Lands and worked to build their world... with love.
Their vision became - unfairly, in my opinion - labelled as anarcho-syndicalism..... so was discounted as a way forward by socialists in Wales and the U.K.
Yet their analysis is as relevant today, as ever, on questions like true democracy and leadership.
Their pamphlet can be accessed online, and I would urge you to read it! If you want to create a fab future for your loved ones..
P.S. hope you like the song!

Many many thanks to Richard Gould, a true genius, who has his own group, yet gave up his time to generate the music.
Also to Ceri of Big Pit, who might not necessarily have agreed with the politics, but was so generous with his time and photos.
And to the Clydach Vale lake and cafe, which is the best nearby example of what is possible!
And last, but definitely not least, a massive thank you to Becs... who has the smile to warm the world - and the guts and generosity - to appear on video.
Image: WHAT IS POSSIBLE THROUGH LOVE
The people of Donbass (pictured) are united and organised..
The Donbass and Wales and The Miners' Next Step
The people of Donbass run their own army, police and civil
affairs, and run a successful economy, based on soviet style factory and mine local democracy --- so they decide how their buildings and parks, facilities and arts and crafts, fulfill their needs and values.
Because the Kiev government - brought into being by US money and the Maiden violent insurrection and coup - helped to power, extreme nationalist forces.. the rest of Ukraine is trapped and being stripped of its material wealth.
Local oligarchs, bowing to a West desperate to keep its old role, as ''the chosen ones'' - plus a group of psychotic 'US 'neo-cons'', who genuinely welcome a ''decider'' world war, now run things in Ukraine. Millions of Ukrainians are leaving the country... as prices rise and their economy is stripped, and the war on the Donbass, backed by US-led NATO, is an open sore.
All in the middle of a pandemic and the Earth being poisoned against humanity... well!
And the miners of Wales who met in 1912, planned.. then explained... how to work and achieve a better life, by realising the dreams of the vast majority.
Their solution was to use the power of organisation, to create wealth.
They, at that time, planned to havethe local lodges use their organisational
skills.. to set up many businesses...
but any organisation can, right now, call on a number of volunteers to gladly work an hour a month... and many will be happy to do more. From each, according to their ability and to each, according to their need.
That's the spirit.
It's simple... and the only way to achieve a beautiful world, is bit by bit, until it's done.
If three people or a few hundred give one hour a month... then an affordable child nursery for working parents, or a centre to entertain the children after school, are all possible.
No-one has to fight against anyone, or rob or borrow money, as people will volunteer, either their time, gifts, or money, to a cause which benefits all in your community.
Love will grow even stronger in your community.
The better place everyone wants, will grow slowly, in peace, like a baby grows in the womb.
That's the miners' Next Step 2.

This does not mean, by the way, that public ownership is a bad thing, but that creative thinking is necessary.
We have seen how nationalised industries lack democratic accountability, and can be used badly, by both Labour & Tory governments --- as milk cows by the private sector, or to massage the unemployment figures.
And time and time again, after the public has paid for investments, to make them profitable... they are ''re-privatised''.
There are alternatives to the old failed model of public ownership, as seen in this country. Worker co-ops, Foundations, even charity status... could be tried.
There's nothing especially socialist, about nationalisation - Tories, even fascists use it, when private ownership has failed..
It's successful public ownership and control... that brings real lasting benefits, that's what we want!

Russian President Vladimir Putin has supported the
idea of Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin to
issue housing certificates to people living in the
Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics and
whose houses were destroyed.
At a meeting with the president on Friday 29th July,
Khusnullin said how the reconstruction of housing
in the Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics
was planned. According to his message,
what cannot be rebuilt... will be
“For those people who do not want to wait today, we
offer and ask you to agree the option of paying out
a housing certificate with the opportunity to buy
them housing in the territory of the Donetsk
Republic in any locality. I think there will
be demand for that, too,” the Deputy
Prime Minister suggested.
He also suggested possible mechanisms of lump-
sum payments and compensation for repairs.
“Let’s do it that way. But this should apply not only to
the Donetsk Republic, but also, say, to the Lugansk
Republic – where there is demand for it, and where
people are waiting for it,” replied the Head of State.
Khusnullin said that responsible departments are
currently drawing up a schedule of what is to be
repaired over three years.
“We have already completed 85% of all the housing
stock <…>, and everything we can restore, we will
restore everything. All that we cannot repair, we
will build. We will work out by years, where,
when, and in what quarter we will build,”
The deputy head of the Cabinet of Ministers
noted that the approach to housing repairs
had been found as well.
“We have agreed that to repair inside the flats
or inside private houses we will also allocate
six thousand rubles (per square metre),”
– he explained.
Khusnullin also explained how Putin’s order to elaborate the possibility of a one-time
payment to such citizens was fulfilled.
According to him, the mechanism
approved during the floods in the
Irkutsk region, was taken as a basis for this.
“You know it very well, I was in charge of the situation
there and I regularly reported to you on these issues.
This is the mechanism we are proposing to apply in
these areas and we will provide payment to all
those who want to be repaired,” he reported.
The Deputy Prime Minister gave assurances that
the mechanisms will be worked out and
submitted to the President.

July 1st, 1:06pm (DAN)
Some 100 orphaned children and children without
parental care from the Donetsk People’s Republic
have applied for Russian citizenship using a fast
track procedure. It became possible thanks to
the Russian president’s decree issued in May,
said Eleonora Fedorenko, the child rights
advisor to the DPR Head.
“The Russian president’s decree on fast track Russian
citizenship for DPR and LPR residents dated 2019 did
not include such a group as children from state-
supported organizations, ” Fedorenko said.
“On May 30th, the decree was amended to include
children from government institutions in the group
eligible for fast track Russian citizenship. There’s
already the first group of applicants, which
numbers some 100 people.”
Russian citizenship conferment makes DPR orphaned
children and children without parental care, equal in
rights with Russian children, she added.
It will considerably ease the provision of assistance
to them by Russia. “What is the benefit of Russian
citizenship? It’s no secret that we send children
to Russia for medical treatment, especially
those with serious illnesses who cannot
get medical assistance here. But this...
costs money; we’re looking for money.
But now they are citizens who enjoy
equal rights with Russian children,”
On May 30th, Russian President Vladimir Putin
signed a decree on fast track Russian citizen-
ship for orphaned children from the DPR, LPR
and Ukraine. In April, Russia and the Donbass
Republics coordinated the moves towards an
agreement on the adoption of Donbass

atmosphere which would normally cause
irritation and discomfort.

of abandoned apartmentbuildings which
had been damaged by Ukrainian gun-
men fire, this activity makes one
happy as it gives hope for the
revival of the city and its
return to normal life.
Earlier reports said that it is planned to build almost
100,000 square metres of living space (over 1,000 apartments) in the area. Half of the houses will
be commissioned by October, and the rest
together with the hospital a month later.
