Draft Letter for your Support see Live Vote"I would like to Ratify the Letter to the Charities Section,RevenueCommissioners, with Regard to Right of Place and the Aislin Centre"Charities…Continue
The Letter waiting to be ratified to the Revenue Commissioners is our Best bet, It is currently Ratified by 9 Members of the "Shame of Ireland" if we can get all the Members to Ratify it? We can send it to the Media at the same time!! The HSE keep funding these Groups because it was the groups that where involved in the negotiation of the Statutory Fund and to accept that these Groups do not Represent Survivors; would put the whole Statutory Fund in Jepordy!
This is why this letter is so important, yet Mambers do not act?
One letter Ratified by 50 Members would carry more weight than single letters!!
It would also mean that as a Survivor Pressure Group that WE the "Shame of Ireland" where actually on the Political Map??
This would be a world first as we have no Leader, because we are not Sheep!
What we do have is a passionate Membership who will not be lead about bythe nose!!
Welcome to the Debate! Everyones opinion is valid, and indeed Welcome!
Your Posting appears to have run short?
I have to say that in light of the Anecdotal Evidence of the way in which Survivor Groups aquired their Membership that a full audit of Membership could be achieved without breaching Data Protection Law, a Mail ot of Postcards to be returned to FREEPOST Address?
If the New Board want to be seen to be for the Good, they should be Ratifying our Letter?
You know me very well by now!
The Letter to the Revenue Commissiner still stands!
Michael's Membership of the "Shame of Ireland" is a valid one as far as I can acertain?
I have no Private or Public Grievance with any Suvivor or their Children (Which Michael is).
To say I "Run with the Hare and Bark with the Hounds"
Anyone who wants the Statutory Fund Gone is an Allie of Mine!
Anyone who wants Funding for Organisations who do not or cannot deliver what Survivors is NOT!
It is not me who has to "Run with the Hare or Bark with the Hounds"
In My Posting Above I quite Clearly State
If the New Board want to be seen to be for the Good, they should be Ratifying our Letter?" (this is the Letter to the Revenue Commissioners)
It is my opinion that any Money that has been paid to Survivors Groups, and unaccounted for was Stolen from the Survivors (Abuse allowed by the HSE, and the Greed of a few!). I want this back!
I have Just approved a Member whose name is Michael Walsh?
If it is the Michael Walsh I think it is then we should Welcome him?
This could be the beginning of BIG Change, and a NEW Future of Democracy for Survivors and their Families??
Kay, I understand that you won't hold your breath?
I am holding mine!!
I have been trying to get the "Leaders" of Survivors Groups to interact with us for 5 Months!!
Hard work can pay off??
Kay,Catherine and Jimmy, We have been freinds long enough and we know what we and each other believe!
Jimmy your Comment
"cant wait to see the 1500 to also become member's here! Wow, who know's where that will lead, Rob, maybe we will also get all the other group leader's sign up, and then really be in a position to challenge the Government,"
Is I believe slightly tonge in Cheek and also a Comment full of Optimism!!
I have for a long time been saying "It is not about Personalities but the task in hand".
Even if the R.O.P. have a core of 100 members or less that they can bring in!
If we all work together on what is important to Survivors (Not The Government) who knows what can be achieved?
And ALL WITHOUT a LEADER!
