Not Your Usual Digital Hustings

28 Apr 2021

Earlier this month, Raise Your Voice hosted the Not Your Usual Digital Hustings event as a collaboration of Boys and Girls Clubs of Wales, Swansea MAD and Deryn, with funding from the UK Democracy Fund.
We were lucky enough to have Radio One’s Steffan Powell host the event for us and be joined by 5 major parties: Fflur Elin – Plaid Cymru, Leena Sarah Farhat – Liberal Democrats, Anthony Slaughter – Green Party, Eluned Morgan – Labour and Abigail Mainon – Conservatives.
Young people from all over Wales submitted questions prior to and during the event, with some joining the politicians on the virtual stage to ask them personally, with topics ranging from systematic racism to sustainable jobs and the environment.

Yn gynharach y mis hwn, cynhaliodd Coda Dy Lais y digwyddiad ar y cyd ‘nid eich hystingau digidol’ gyda Chlybiau Bechgyn a Merched Cymru, Swansea MAD a Deryn – gyda chyllid gan UK Democracy Fund.
Roeddem yn ffodus iawn i gael Steffan Powell o Radio One i gyflwyno’r digwyddiad ar ein rhan, a bu 5 plaid fawr: Fflur Elin – Plaid Cymru, Leena Sarah Farhat – Democratiaid Rhyddfrydol, Anthony Lladd – Plaid Werdd, Eluned Morgan – Llafur, Abigail Mainon – Ceidwadwyr. Pobl ifanc o bob cwr o Gymru’n ymuno ag ef drwy gyflwyno cwestiynau cyn ac ar ôl y digwyddiad, gyda rhai’n ymuno ag ef ar y llwyfan i ofyn cwestiynau wyneb i wyneb. Roedd y pynciau’n amrywio o hiliaeth systematig i swyddi cynaliadwy a’r amgylchedd.
