I was the One who managed to get the Reporter to the Meeting I am so thankful to the Irish Independant news paper for turning up though she was not allowed in the meeting when when I seen her outside typing she told me that they cannot speak with he present that Mary Higgins said herself she would have to leave the building and The Chair Person reiterated this too but being a heated meeting Tom did do well to try and calm things down I seen he had all surviors in heart, but this was all about ALL survivors not just those who hold the meeting that was their choice by which ALL survivors were very thankful to Tom.
I reenter the meeting room and demanded the Journalist should be allowed as this was the whole poit to get the News Papers involved on OUR Behalf as the Minister of Education claims he advertised the Statutory fund in all media and we all know this to be ANOTHER LIE but here we were again without a voice to the Irish STATE the PEOPLE OF IRELAND are kept Ignorant of our views, I seen this as another COVER UP and I went fecken MAD at the Chair and Mary Higgins saying why are you stopping this reporter being present in the meeting it is VITAL she is PRESENT so survviors can prove how we are being treated and not only that but that other survivors get it first hand who could not make it so as you can all see they JUST DO NOT WANT THE PUBLIC TO KNOW HOW WE ARE BEING TREATED.
It is a ONE WAY ONSLAUGHT ONLY WHAT THE GOVERNMENT SAY COUNTS.
Tom did his best to explain but I was not having it I was fuming mad that the Reporter was NOT allowed to SEE HEAR and WITNESS FIRST HAND of just how we are being DICTATED TO.
The Reporter had to leave as mary Higgins would NOT speak IN FRONT OF THE REPORTER.
No matter the what this reporter writes she did her best I felt for the way she was treated by Mary Higgins in this matter. I see it that WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE THE WORLD TO KNOW THE TRUTH the Minister of Education is a LIAR A CHEAT A TOTAL SCOUNDRIL AND THAT IS PUTTING IT LIGHTLY HE MUST RESIGN NOW.
Many many thanks to the lady reporter for her efforts, she did hold interviews by verious survivors and I will also be meeting her soon on this matter. Unless of course she be stopped yet again from reporting theTRUTH to the WORLDAND ALL SURVIVORS WO COULD NOT MAKE THIS MEETING

HERE IS MINISTER QUINN”S ADDRESS OF OFFICE, EMAIL, and PHONE No.
Ruairi Quinn TD
Or on +353 1 618 3434.
Dear Minister Quinn
I am writing to ask you on behalf of all survivors who stand together online and off line will you hold a NATIONAL MEETING for all survivors from all around Ireland to gather in Dublin for this meeting, before you decide to destroy our files/records, before this Memorial is built, and especially before this Statutory fund door is open to all survivors.
As there are so many issues that need to be raised since as you once said your self we are the walking wounded, the damaged the suffering and the hurt that continues to this very day.
We survivors feel it is time you decided to let all survivors have the right to hear from you and the Head of the Catholic Church personally and from the person you have appointed for this Statutory fund Mary Higgins.
Survivors have so many questions to ask you personally since you and the Head of the Catholic Church have never held a meeting with survivors themselves since you became Education Minister.
Do you think since you have made all these decisions for survivors that it is now time you did meet all survivors and face them properly for the first time?
We would like also to meet with the Board you and Mary Higgins chose to sit for this board of the Statutory fund especially the head of the Catholic Church Ireland.
We need to hear from you directly Minister yourself why you have made such decisions you have toward the Walking wounded, the damaged the suffering the pain and the hurt you once said the State is guilty as the Religious are in this most horrid abuse.
Since you have made these decisions don’t you think Minister it should be our human right and most appropriate to have you explain in person for the first time ever since you have never yet done so with all survivors personally?
There are only 15000 survivors who came forward and many have died and are dying plus a great number may not be able to travel. So Minister can we have this meeting that is well over due as you well know and have it all financed by this fund.
Minister we read in the papers that you are using these names given to you via redress office to use in the Statutory fund and soon to destroy all documentation by this fund.
Beside this Minister we have this Memorial to the price of 500,000.
Minister Quinn with respect to your words on the Ryan Report the Walking wounded , the Damaged , the Hurt , the Suffering and the Pain that continues with these people us survivors of Abuse do you now think it is time all survivors met you in person for once. We hope this could take place as soon as possible, so you Minister can see and witness the very words you have spoken on the Ryan Report along with the Head of the Catholic Church so we can bring everything to some perspective and understanding.
Please we all look forward to hearing from you the Head of the Catholic Church and Mary Higgins and the Board in person for the very first time. yours sincerely the SURVIVORS WHO STAND TOGETHER we are not a group but survivors who do not approve of any groups as it is our right to stand for ourselves.
Mr Robert Mullen.
PLEASE FEEL FREE AND COPY AND POST PLUS SHARE WITH YOUR NAMES ADDED
Read this please I have tried on so many occasions to contact a sertain group leader but he refuses to come to the phone everytime, I do NOT take kindly to this as this is about ALL SURVIVORS OR NO SURVIVORS no one has any right to mislead survivors into thinking they are a Groups it pisses me off we are all equal and never to be devided as this has ALWAYS been the case since day one. MEMBERSHIP is DIVISION of SURVIVORS RIGHTS ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE NO QUALIFIED NOT EDUCATED NOT EXPERIENCED I know I am neither of these BUT you folks know I ask so many questions that certain people hate us to ask as I will not be judged by those feckers who try to devide survivors I am just a servant to my family of survivors at least i try hard to EXPOSE the shit of all EXPLOITATION of us survivors I am not a leader but a plain servant of these Questions Ill sit at the back of any room on these matters as i see my family of survivors are as IMPORTANT as myself.
It would be nice to have at least some phone calls to update me so I could notify all survivors as we all do on here everyone on here posts all up dates and help to support each other that is why survivors online do not need to be begging for info on what is happening on line or rely upon either and most of all be devided by MEMBERSHIPS
I am not sure abouut anyone else I can only write what i feel and recieve from GROUPS no matter how they DISGUISE THEMSELVES themselves GROUPS ARE GROUPS I say NO WAY WILL I BE PART OF THEM.
EVERY SINGLE SURVIVOR HAS THE HUMAN RIGHT ON ALL EQUAL OPPERTUNITIES TO BE HEARD “”FIRST HAND”” WITH OUT THE EGOS AND FUNDS FOR THOSE WHO CLAIM TO BE REPRESENTITIVES WE HERE ARE LOOKING OUT FOR EQUAL JUSTICE AND DO NOT REQUIRE FUNDS FROM EGOTISTIC PEOPLE WHO SEE THEMSELVES ABOVE SURVIVORS.
I have sent a letter to The Minister of Education that since he has NEVER HELD A MEETING WITH SURVIVORS THAT IT IS NOW TIME HE DID
I will post my letter every where so all survivors can see for themselves we survivors who stand together are watching out for fellow survivors the way it all should have happened from day one.
Minister Quinn has made all decisions so it is now time he meets all the faces he made these decisions on after all he has had us face him and the redress so now it is their turn to face us
