RETENTION OF RECORDS EMAIL CAMPAIGN

March 03, 2020

The Retention of Records Bill denies survivors’ rights to access their own personal information, and if passed, it will seal for at least the next 75 years all records relating to the State’s investigation of abuse in industrial and reformatory schools. If you agree that this Bill should be stopped, please use the link below to email TDs and Senators.

Redress: Has the State delivered for abuse survivors?

March 03, 2020

Excellent new documentary covering the 1999-2009 investigation into industrial school child abuse and the compensation scheme for survivors. Horrific to hear what the survivors endured at the schools, what they endured giving their testimony, how they were silenced afterwards if they received compensation, how the Church got away without a single conviction and offering very little money, and how now the government wants to seal for 75 years all the records of the 15,367 victims who bravely gave testimony of their abuse inside Ireland’s industrial schools.
