Petition Teach Welsh children about Wales’ colonisation of Patagonia

Wales’ colonisation of Patagonia must be introduced into the curriculum. It is taught to be a beautiful unity of two countries worlds apart when in reality it erases civil rights history. It was always taught as a means to keep the Welsh language alive by introducing it to a South American country, when in reality Welsh people were introduced to Patagonia to “civilise” communities which derives from racist ideologies which don’t get taught in school.
