225Refugee Crisis: in dialogue with volunteers along the route A Conversation with Refugee Crisis volunteers Deirdre Tunney & Miranda Barty-Taylor

Gavin talks to two volunteers who helped out in the Refugee Crisis over the Christmas period. Deirdre Tunney went to help in the Leros refugee camp & https://www.facebook.com/lerossn/?fref=ts Miranda Barty-Taylor who went to help in the Dobova refugee camp http://www.aidboxconvoy.co.uk/ https://www.facebook.com/Team-Humanity-Van-1495460617450440/?ref=ts&fref=ts&__mref=message_bubble On the day Team Humanity Van returned from Dobova, the British Parliament were deciding upon whether or not to bomb Syria. Miranda wrote the following letter to David Cameron on the ferry back to Dover: Dear David Cameron, I write this from the ferry from Dunkirk to Dover. I am standing at the back of the boat staring back at the frothy, grey-blue waves. I have just delivered tents and sleeping bags to Grande-Synthe refugee camp, and before that had driven with five friends to Slovenia, with two supply vans full of shoes, winter clothes and medications. We're on our way home. I write this not to boast, but to contextualise my impotent rage as I stare at the arbitrary piece of sea which means that I can depend on sleeping in a bed tonight, and that those we left behind cannot. I write to justify my frustrated tears as I think about those we helped at Dobova train station. As I walked past the debate on the TV to come out here to the sea and the salt-wind, I heard you all discussing "the risk of civilian casualties." I rage, rage against what I know to be inevitable. I write not to beg and plead. I know you will make a decision based on your own version of what is right - a reality so far from what is happening at that station as to be farcical. My head is filled with faces from that night shift, faces full of uncertainty. I remember the young man who gripped my arm compassionately when I explained to him that I didn't have a hat for him - that we'd run out. HE comforted ME. I remember the two year old who told me clearly he needed a jacket. His parents were busy finding shoes. But he knew enough to grab my attention and gesture to the piece of clothing he desperately lacked. The winds were bitter that night. I'm glad I found him a jacket. I remember the eyes of the boy travelling alone, not more than fifteen, who at 3am stepped out of the line and, shivering, pointed to the ground and asked, "Osterrich?" He didn't even know where he was. You have a chance to be remembered in history as making the brave, fore-sighted choice. Of breaking the cycle - the obvious, obvious cycle - of war, displacement, resentment, hatred and terrorism. You have the chance to make the humanitarian choice. I wish you would do a night shift at Dobova train station. I write this with no expectations. I am exhausted from days of driving through Europe. I write this because I don't know what else to do. I am weeping into the wind. And I am praying to whatever the hell may be out there that you make the only choice that makes any sense at all.

504Jenny Hill - Songs of Separation Gavin talks to Jenny Hill about the Songs of Separation project

Gavin talks to Jenny about the Songs Of Separation Project About the project: Eigg hills & fields Songs of Separation brought together ten female folk musicians from Scotland and England, to create a recording which reflects on the issue of ‘separation’ in its many forms, through traditional song. Celebrating the similarities and differences in our musical, linguistic and cultural heritage, and set in the context of a post-referendum world, the work aims to evoke emotional responses and prompt new thinking about the issue of separation as it occurs in all our lives. The collected songs will aim to get to the heart of what we feel when we are faced with a separation, both good and bad. Providing a ‘thread through time’, joining us to previous generations who shared the same human experiences and responses to separation, and to the generations that will follow. Taking place on the beautiful Isle of Eigg in June 2015, the musicians spent an intensive week rehearsing and recording, including site recordings at the two sites central to the ‘Big Women of Eigg’ legend. The SoS musician team brought together the musical skills and ‘big thinking’ of Eliza Carthy and Karine Polwart, two of the UK’s most celebrated voices, Mary Macmaster and Kate Young, two boundary-breaking Scots, Hannah James, Hazel Askew and Rowan Rheingans, from the award winning English ensemble Lady Maisery, Jenn Butterworth and Jenny Hill, brilliant backline players who have worked in both English and Scottish trad scenes, and Hannah Read, a New York-based musician who spent much of her childhood on the Isle of Eigg. It was an unforgettable week of wonderful music making and compelling discussion! We have been sharing the progress of the work through short films, released during the week of the recording (see our youtube channel), and we are currently working on a ‘making of’ documentary, to go with the album, with a planned release in January 2016.

2310HSBC WhistleBlower - an interview with Nicholas Wilson we talk to the anti-corruption campaigner who blew the whistle on "the worst and largest single case of banking fraud to have ever emerged in this country"

Interview with Nicholas Wilson whistleblower and anti-corruption campaigner. “Nicholas Wilson’s revelations on HSBC fraud in Britain constitute the worst and largest single case of banking fraud to have ever emerged in this country.” Nafeez Ahmed “I have dealt with a lot of whistleblowers in my time and Mr Wilson has about the greatest credibility and is the least motivated by personal grievance.” Ian Fraser, author of Shredded: Inside RBS, The Bank That Broke Britain “You are not taking on HSBC, you are taking on the establishment.” Andrew Feinstein, Writer, campaigner, former ANC MP. Exec Dir Corruption Watch UK. Author ‘The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade’ This website discloses details of a £1bn consumer fraud by HSBC and the cover-ups by regulators, media and the government. The Financial Conduct Authority have announced that they will reopen their investigation. This is not conspiracy theory; there is evidence for every link. It is the entrance to a rabbit hole and you can go ever deeper. It represents 12 years of my life.
