Mabli Jones, friend of Plaid Ifanc, offers a glimpse at what history can teach us about how world powers deal with disasters such as the Covid-19 pandemic, based on the book and subsequent documentary ‘The Shock Doctrine’ by Naomi Klein.
If you are intrigued and want to learn more, check out the free documentary, also some of Naomi Klein’s resources are available online for free such as this shortened version of the book.
The author will also take part in an online discussion with The Guardian editor-in-chief Katharine Viner this Thursday, 2 July 2020, 7pm–8pm. Tickets can be found here.

As 2019 draws to a close, Plaid Ifanc’s NEC would like to thank all our members and supporters who’ve helped make this year a successful one for our movement. As ever it has been a year of highs and lows, but without the hard work and dedication of all our members our work wouldn’t be possible.
Born in Caerphilly and brought up in Ystrad Mynach, Delyth Jewell attended Ysgol Bro Allta and Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhymni before graduating with a BA in English Language and Literature and a Masters degree in Celtic Studies from University of Oxford. After leaving University she worked as a parliamentary researcher for Plaid Cymru in Westminster, where she was awarded the ‘Parliamentary Researcher of the Year’ in the 2014 DODS Parliamentary Researcher of the Year Awards. She has also worked for Citizens Advice and the charity ActionAid on issues relating to international development and women’s rights, therefore there is no question that she’s the perfect role model to helps inspire and encourage other women in Wales to get involved in Politics and hopefully one day stand in an election; locally or Nationally.
