Event Description

(Survivors Who Stand Together) are holding a Peaceful Protest outside Dáil Eireann on Tuesday the 20th of May 2014 starting @ 1pm. We chose this date to mark the 5th Anniversary of the publication of the (Ryan Report) (Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse 2009)

The reasons behind our Protest are; 18 Religious orders gave us Survivors of Ireland's Industrial Schools 110 Million Euro plus Properties, however, the State who are also a guilty party in Survivors of Ireland's Industrial Schools abuse have taking our (Reparation Money and Properties) and they have put it into a Fund called (Caranua) formerly knowing as the (Statutory Trust Fund), Survivors were never asked their opinion on what they wanted to do with their funds, due to Survivors having (No Representation, we have State funded fake groups who are funded to speak for the majority of Survivors, but the truth is they represent no survivors, they represent the State) the State are a Guilty party along side the Church in our Childhood abuse and they have no right dictating to us Survivors about how we are going to (((spend our funds))) "Caranua" is a FRAUD our funds are been squandered in administration. The CEO of Caranua Mary Higgins is in receipt of a Salary of €80 Thousand Euro's per year plus all excrescence paid for the next number of years, while the Survivors get (NOTHING) you heard right the Survivors get (NOTHING) not even the CRUMBS!

Please come stand with (Survivors Who Stand Together) while we tell the Irish Government to keep out of our business with the Church and to return our Funds and Property back to its rightful owners (The Survivors). Its time to stand up and be counted!

Rob,  I have been advised to register with Caranua   can you tell me who they are and what they do.  Hope to attend the meeting next month will probably be meeting up with a girl who was in the same hell hole as myself.

Hi Liz,

Caranua Means "New Friend" it is a rebranding of the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund.

It is quite offensive to sanitise it in this way? Another attempt to rewrite history?

You can read about the Launch at the following Link?

The Rebranding was announced at the following link

There is plenty of Other information on the Website.

Hope you are keeping well.

Feel free to ask questions any time

Take Care

I'm sure that Cathriona hasn't come to this decision Lightly! The problem is that Survivors are not coordinated that is they do not meet up in one place? I know she is in contact with many Survivors on Facebook it is these who have obviously have expressed this concern of being Targeted and Black Listed.

It is Alarming to think that the Government and Caranua have such a repressive hold on the Minds of Many Survivors.

Their mechanism of Control and Indifference (Survivors Groups)  over the Years has paid dividends??

I recently read the leaflet and see no point applying for anything.  things mentioned in the leaflet that they can help with should already be available if on welfare!

so many survivors are not resident in Ireland. a significant number are not on facebook or twitter or online.

Comment by jack colleton on April 13, 2014 at 18:50

would be interesting to hear from anybody who has applied for something and got it!
