This week's OUT OF THE BAG really was, yet again, a VERY full show! We even went over our time!
My first guest introduced himself to us and his campaign SONG to highlight the refugee situation going on at the moment. Jerome Kamara and his friends, Kris, David and Emma have recorded a song in aid of The Irish Refugee Council and the Calais Refugees. It was great introducing Jerome and friends on to OUT OF THE BAG and especially great to welcome them to Peoples Internet Radio! We enjoyed an hour of them telling us why they recorded the song and their future plans!
Check their video on youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPPGf6ZFLXU
and https://www.idonate.ie/fundraiser/11257015_ghostfacemusic30-s-charity-single---cloud-above-me.html to support their cause.
A MASSIVE thank you to Jerome, Kris, David and Emma!
My second guest was fearless campaigner for ending child abuse, Cheryl Corless from The UK Child Sex Abuse, People's Tribunal! Check their website here: http://ukcsapt.org.uk/
From their website:
Cheryl is the daughter of an Irish Catholic care survivor and was thrown into UK care at 14, where she was sexually, physically and emotionally abused for 3 years. She has lost her children twice for forced adoption for the “future risk of emotional harm” because of issues from her abuse in the care system.
She believes much of the care system is corrupt and not fit for purpose. She has helped many survivors over the years and knows the problem of sexual abuse in the care system is devastating and enormous. Cheryl believes it’s time for all survivors of abuse to have a voice. She herself has made numerous complaints to social services over 20 years about her treatment and was told to forget it as if she didn’t matter.
She has never been offered any help or support in any way for what happened. She lost her children to the same system that failed her so badly. Cheryl is 100 percent for the survivors. She is committed to them all and has risked jail to be heard in her quest for justice. She is a campaigner against forced adoption, as well as justice for survivors.
It was a VERY interesting hour!
Thank you Cheryl keep up the GREAT work that you do!

This time we asked Gary what music influenced him and played a few of those tracks that changed Gary into a PUNK ROCK man! An hour of cracking tunes from the likes of Rudi, The Cramps, Suicide, The Dead Boys, Killing Joke and many MORE!
