    688. Mick Finnegan on the St Johns Ambulance Investigation

    12:33

    Late last night Sinn Féin TD, Chris Andrews, asked Minister Roderic O'Gorman why, nine months after it began, St Johns Ambulance have failed to engage with the independent investigation into childhood sexual abuse within the organisation. Joining me to give his reaction to this is one of the victims and friend of the shack, Mick Finnegan. We discuss what this means for him, the other victims and indeed the publics ability to have faith in the organisation. Mick calls on the Minister to do more to bring St Johns Ambulance to the table in terms of engaging with the investigation. You can see the video of the interaction on our twitter feed.

    680. 100 Days of the Taliban

    21:01

    (This podcast was recorded on Nov 24th as a Patron Exclusive) Joining us from a coffee shop in Kabul, Afghanistan, is journalist, Hannah McCarthy, to discuss the humanitarian crisis evolving there. With sanctions increasing food insecurity and workers going unpaid for months, the situation is extremely dire. Hannah outlines how the Taliban are trying to impress international media, while effectively ending domestic journalism. She tells us about the struggles NGO's are having, even to pay staff and the very real humanitarian disaster that is looming for a country of 40 million people.

    679. Exclusive: Let Nadim Stay

    25:00

    Listeners will recall in November that Nadim Hussain joined us from his hospital bed after nine days on hunger strike to stop his deportation. One month on an emotional Nadim rejoined us to tell us what his situation is now. Nadim, sitting in his security guard uniform in a Direct Provision centre, tells us about how he was stabbed and knocked unconscious during the attack that ended in the murder of his parents by political rivals in India. He pleads with Taoiseach, Micheal Martin, to honour his promise to help him and he asks poignantly "what is my crime?" We have to do better than this. Please email and tag the Taoiseach and Minister Roderic O'Gorman #LetNadimStay. The tortoise shack needs your help to continue having these conversations. Join us at patreon.com/tortoiseshack

    173. Personal Stories of the #HousingCrisis: Ciara’s Story

    20:53

    "Disabled, Homeless & Sleeping in my Car" This Reboot Republic talks to Ciara, who tells her story of the housing crisis and homelessness. It's a heart breaking story, and shows the failure of the Irish Government and local authorities to provide housing for disabled people. She explains how she is in receipt of the Housing Assistance Payment, but her private rental accommodation became unsuitable, and she was issued a notice to quit. She couldn't find any suitable private rental, and her HAP was insufficient to cover the Carer support she requires. Ciara was then made homeless, but the Council could not offer her accessible emergency accommodation appropriate to her needs. Ciara is incredibly brave and articulate in telling her story. This is completely unacceptable and we are asking the Minister for Housing to intervene and ensure Ciara gets proper accessible social housing immediately. You can email the Minister for Housing [email protected] and ask him to intervene to house Ciara. Please support this podcast by going to patreon.com/tortoiseshack

    673. The Mother and Baby Home Redress Scheme

    38:16

    Our Government continue to say that they are listening to the survivors of the Magdalene Laundries and Mother and Baby Homes, while at the same time they continue to deny them their rights to their own identities and the new "biggest redress scheme in the history of the state" is just more proof of a State that chooses to, as Noelle Brown brilliantly puts it, delay, deny and wait for us to die. Joining us on the Tortoise Shack to discuss this is legal lecturer, academic and righter of feminist historical wrongs, Mairead Enright and NUI Journalism Lecturer and longtime reporter on this topic with the Irish Examiner, Conall Ó Fátharta. This is a brilliant insight into the how the State heap injustice on top of injustice, with a sprikling of platitudes. If you're not angry, then you aren't listening.
