We in Wales in Scotland may have the whole force of the Unionist media against us but at least we are not faced with the threat of being arrested for treason for calling for autonomy for our Nations.

According to the BBC
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has condemned as "treason" a call by Selahattin Demirtas for Kurdish autonomy."What the co-leader has done is treason, provocation," Mr Erdogan said, referring to Mr Demirtas, co-leader of the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP).
At the weekend the HDP and other pro-Kurdish groups called for self-rule in Turkey's mainly Kurdish south-east.
Turkish prosecutors have launched an investigation into those comments.
The Turkish military has stepped up operations against the rebel Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which is fighting for Kurdish self-rule. The army says it has killed more than 200 PKK militants in the latest fighting.
The PKK is regarded as a "terrorist" organisation by Turkey, the US and EU.
The HDP won 59 seats in Turkey's 550-seat parliament in the 1 November elections. It came third, behind Mr Erdogan's Justice and Development Party (AKP) and the Republican People's Party (CHP).
Speaking on Tuesday, Mr Erdogan said Mr Demirtas and other Kurdish leaders would be "taught a lesson" by the people and the law.
He accused Mr Demirtas of challenging Article 14 of the constitution, which bans activities deemed to "violate the indivisible integrity of the state".
This follows the reports that Turkish - Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu had accused the head of Turkey's p pro-Kurdish opposition party Thursday for using a trip to Moscow to condemn Ankara's shooting down of a Russian warplane over Syria.
Selahattin Demirtas, co-head of the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), met foreign minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow on Wednesday and criticised Ankara for shooting down the warplane near the border with Syria last month. Moscow denies it had entered Turkish airspace.
"They take sides with whoever Turkey is facing a crisis with. Demirtas saying in Moscow that Turkey's downing of Russian jet was wrong is a total disgrace and treason," Davutoglu told a meeting of businessmen in Ankara.
"Our main duty is to raise our voice against Russian cruelty. Supporting Russia while it kills civilians in Syria is treason not only against this country, but also against humanity."
Kurdish politicians have accused Ankara of focusing military efforts on Kurdish militia in Iraq and Syria and failing to take up the fight with Islamic State.
We can only speculate what Endogan means by Mr Demirtas and other Kurdish leaders would be "taught a lesson" by the people and the law.
But if Mr Demirtas is arrested for calling for Automony then what will the response of David Cameron that great defender of Democracy and Freedom?
I'm sure that that there are some Unionists andin the Media who would love to accuse Leanne Wood and in particular Nicola Surgeon of Treason for calling for Independence but they are probably content for now to allow the continuation of Project fear in Scotland under the new guise of SNPBAD.
And what of Jeremy Corbyn? Will the Labour leader condemn the Turkish Government if it arrest the leaders pro-Kurdish opposition part?
If the Turkish leader carries out his threats it must be commended from all quarters and Turkey status as an ally must be brought into question .
