Fresh update on "scotland" discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence
"The cause of Scottish independence. But Britain's vote two years later to leave the European Union, a move that the majority of Scots opposed had put the issue back on the table. My determination is to secure a process that allows the people of Scotland, whether yes, nor or yet to be decided to express their views in a legal constitutional referendum so that the majority view can be established fairly and democratic. Maybe just maybe it's a twice in a lifetime chance. Nicholas sturgeon has said Scotland will head for another referendum on independence that's going to take place. She says on the 19th of October 2023, Matthew hall house is The Economist's British political correspondent. There is a hitch, the British government contends that the meaning of the UK constitution is that only it can decide whether there will be a referendum. So you're heading for a another stalemate. So the irony here is that Scotland can not independently hold an independence referendum it has to get permission from Westminster. How likely is that? Under this promise, it is phenomenally unlikely that Boris Johnson would agree to a second independence referendum. He does not see the constitutional case for it. He does not see the political case for he is under no pressure from his own voters, his own MPs, department members of the Conservative Party to do it. And he has no desire to be the prime minister who sees the breakup of the United Kingdom. And he said as much this week. I think the important point to make is that we think the number one priority for the country is the economic pressures, the spikes in the cost of energy, our plan for a stronger economy, certainly means that we think that we're stronger working together. But we have good relations with us with Scottish government. We'll see what you have to say. And so is it case closed? Is there any way for Scotland to push forward with this referendum without the consent of the British government? So this is a plan that Nicholas sturgeon set out. She's very keen that any referendum is observed as legal and as properly constitutional. Her argument is that if you simply hold a referendum in the Scottish government organizes itself and it's not recognized either by the UK government or those overseas, it doesn't actually get you to independence. You've just had a big street party and not much more than that. So her plan is that she will test this question on the exact meaning of the Scotland act, which acts as the constitutional statute that sets out of the parameters of devolution. At the Supreme Court. Now, the Scottish government's argument seems to be that since referenda are sort of by definition advisory, they don't have any automatic legal effect, then that might be within scope of the Scotland act, which simply says that the union itself is reserved to Westminster. Now, it has to be said, most constitutional watches are fairly pessimistic about miss sturgeon's chances, not least because we have seen under the current presidency of the UK Supreme Court. The president is lord read a very conservative understanding of the scope of the Scottish parliament's powers and a real assertion of the primacy of the Westminster parliament. So it's not looking like that's going to succeed, but you will just have to wait and see what unfolds in court. But with the odds stacked against her in this way, why is she pushing for this again? Well, she's pushing for this again for a number of reasons. One is that the pursuit of Scottish independence is the raison veteran of the SNP. It simply wouldn't be a political force if it didn't believe that. Why now? Well, the short history is in 2014, there was referendum, the pro union side won by a ten point margin. The Brexit referendum of 2016 in which Britain spread to leave the EU or their majority of Scots voted in favor of remaining in the EU coupled with the adventure of Boris Johnson's premiership. He's a fantastically unpopular in Scotland, has really generated the sense in the nationalist movement that this is it. This is their window. It really is now or never. So studio is feeling this huge amount of pressure from her own members who are incredibly impatient to see this second referendum that she's been talking about now for 6 years to really come to fruition. And given how difficult you say it could be, does she have a plan here, a strategy for getting what she wants? So the first leg of her plan is stress Boris Johnson. The second leg of her plan is to test the question in Supreme Court and see if they will create a legal avenue through which she can run. The third leg is to say that failing both of those options. She will turn the next general election, which we expect to take place in 2024, where it could be sooner into a de facto referendum. So if more than 50% of voters vote in favor of independence through their choice of parties and it's worth stating that the details of how this is going to work have not been laid out yet, because she says that their choice at the ballot box will act as a de facto referendum and create a new mandate for independence. One way to interpret all this is about a leader who is under intense pressure from homeroom members to spell out avenues to something which it is not apparent to exists. And so if you need to set new deadlines, new targets offer clues of new routes forward in order to basically keep the show on the road. So the question is, who faces pressure from the question of Scottish independence? Is it Boris Johnson, who is under pressure here, or is it Nicola Sturgeon? But if you look at the dynamics within their own parties, it really is a sturgeon who's facing the pressure to deliver an outcome on this. Which is to say that it's only she who's taking a risk that this won't have broader effects on British politics. So all the risk is on her side for this reason. The S&P members and the broader discourse nationalist movement are very, very keen to see a referendum. And it really sort of raises existential questions for them if there is not an avenue through which that can be delivered. On the Conservative Party side, Johnson's under no pressure at all to a C two a referendum. His position is that one shouldn't happen because there's no demand for it in Scotland and it's constitutionally proper for him to refuse it. Conservative Party MPs do not want a referendum concept party members don't want one on several party voters don't want one either. There is no part of the Conservative Party's electoral coalition which relies on getting support from people who want Scottish independence. So he's intensely comfortable refusing again and again. Now more than that, actually, the threat or the specter of a referendum is incredibly useful for him because it allows the Conservative Party to campaign as a unionist forstner in elections and it allows Boris Johnson to say that if you vote labor, you are risking a second referendum on Scottish independence because labor will team up with the S&P and team up with the Lib Dems in a sort of a big unwieldy gangly coalition that will let this happen. So he can go around England, he can go around Scotland and say the only way to stop this, the only way to save the United Kingdom is to vote conservative. Now that's a pretty crude message lots of people don't like it, but it has proven quite effective in recent years and sturgeons announcement yesterday would seem to me to only reanimate that message and to give it a fresh lease of life. So what you see in your crystal ball is that essentially this is a doomed effort that is only going to empower the very man that they dislike so much. It is going to empower him. It will sustain Nicola Sturgeon, perhaps at the top of her party and help further her dominance of Scottish electoral politics. It will support Boris Johnson as he needs something to campaign on at the next general election and truth be told with the economy in the state it's in and with public services in the state they're in. We really need some ammunition for his electoral offensive. So they are the winners of this stalemate. The big loser is the Labor Party, which would rather the whole issue went away. Thanks very much for.
The Discrepancy Between the Real Polluters and the Developed World
"So talk to us about the discrepancy between the real polluters and the developed world and then secondly, if these people are really serious, if fossil fuels are evil, if industrialization is evil, how much of this is truly the most pernicious post colonial colonialism if it were truly used against, I don't know. Third world countries like Africa who aren't allowed suddenly to use plastics made out of petroleum. So the duality of the standards first and then the real embedded colonial attitude that these people have. And while on the first point, the way the United Nations, they have a thing called the UN climate fund, $100 billion a year and Hillary Clinton was a big proponent of this as the Secretary of State under Obama when they did the UN Paris. Agreement. So this is the way if you look at some of the when they have a UN climate summit. The last one was in Scotland. I'm going to the one in Egypt this year in November. They're having one the next UN climate summit. The highest attending nations are African nations, South American and some of the poorer nations in the world. Why is that? Because they're all exempt from emissions. For one thing. And secondly, they're promised to be recipients of this climate aid, this redistribution, if you will, of money. And I talked to South African development activists who taught Leon low, who talked about this, the UN is going to give money to the leaders best able in Africa and South America, Asia, who are best able to lock their citizens in poverty and keep them poor because if you're poor, your emissions are low. And that's what the UN is doing. They're bribing essentially politicians of poor countries not to allow their people to
How Humanity Became A Glorious Ruin
"Those of you who have traveled in Scotland and many of you have, I know, because you've told me that you have completed your educational program by going there. Have noted or will know it when you go, that especially when you get beyond Perth and up into the highlands of Scotland, you very quickly come on castles, which are no longer inhabited. If you do what your art teacher encourages you to do when you were doing art appreciation, namely stand back far enough and squeeze your eyes, you can begin to see that even in their ruined condition, there is a splendor about these edifices that speaks to their former glory. And so while we would have to conclude that what we're looking at are ruins, nevertheless, in one sense, they are glorious ruins. Now I mention that because that is at one apt way of understanding how men and women are viewed in light of the events that are described for us in genesis chapter three. The Bible tells us that when God finished the work of creation, he was absolutely satisfied. He pronounced it good. And the Bible tells us that the apex of his creative handiwork was in the construction first of Adam and then of eve. These individuals that he made were not morally neutral. They were not ambivalent, said somewhere in a kind of neutral territory between good and evil. But the Bible says that they were actually made created with a positive bias with an inclination to do what is good. But that's the event that is described here in genesis three. We find that as the attempt to take a giant leap upward as it were, they are strategy goes horribly wrong.
Who Is 'First Casualty' Author Toby Harnden?
"Before we get into these amazing stories, Mike span, David Tyson, John walker lind, who is Toby Honda. Tell us about what you did in the British armed forces and your life as a journalist before you became an author. Yes, well, you know, we share a somewhat similar accent as listeners and viewers will detect. You still got yours. Our minds kind of rubbing off a little bit, but I don't know. I'm worried. I'm worried about mind getting a little bit Americanized. But I trust yeah, you're a bit soggy in the middle of the Atlantic somewhere. Yeah, I mean the ace. So yeah, I'm 56 years old, I was born in 66. My father was in the navy. We moved around, we sort of ended up in Manchester, industrial city in the northwest. You don't have a mancunian accent. I think the Royal Navy actually did for the mancunian accent, which was pretty skin deep anyway. But you know, I sort of, you know, I wanted to follow in my father's footstep, I guess there's so many sort of young men do. And I also wanted to get out of Manchester and see the world and it just seemed like a very kind of insular sort of small sort of place. And so all that teenage angst was just channeled towards working hard to get out. And so I got a sponsorship from the I joined the navy at 18. Went to Dartmouth, which is the Britannia royal naval college, kind of the equivalent of the U.S. naval academy at Annapolis, but not really because it's more basic officers training. It's like santas is shorter. Yeah, that's right. I mean, I was there for less than a year. And I threw the navy I got a sponsorship to Oxford to study modern history, so I went off whilst serving naval officer, although I barely wore the uniform for those years apart from a few months sailing around sort of Hong Kong and the far east and Australia. So I had some good times. Yes, exactly. So I was serving naval officer for three years at college and then graduated from college and was pitched in to a career. Which I enjoyed immensely, but you know, it was after the Falklands War, which was 1982, I was joining and supplying to join just sort of join the Falklands actually, age 16. But I missed that. I was stationed in Scotland for the Gulf War, tried very hard to get involved. They managed to that's a long way away from Iraq. I know. They managed to win it without meeting my services. And I remember my boss at the time said, listen to, we don't worry about it. There's going to be plenty of time for medals. And I remember thinking, no, there won't. And of course I left after ten years of service without a single

Author William Federer Describes the Peace of Augsburg 1955
"Show and we're talking about how the pilgrims came to be the pilgrims, the book is titled the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it, the prequel to America's freedom of the author, William Federer on the line. Bill, you were talking about really, it's just amazing to me. If you don't mind backtracking a little bit, because there's so many things unfolding at the same time. So let me put the needle back on the record. Right. Well, the idea is that Muslims are invading Europe surrounding Vienna, 1529. The reformation started in 1517 and now we got this internal and external disruption of Europe. The older Roman Emperor, Charles V of Spain, he has the biggest empire on Planet Earth. I mean, the Philippines are named after his son, king Philip of Spain. And he has all the new world. He's taken the gold from the new world to fit on his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean. Anyway, he's faced with his double dilemma, reformation out inside and based on the outside. He actually strikes a deal with the protestants. It's called a piece of Augsburg of 1555. I speak a little German and that's a fun number. It's own 1400 proven folks. 55. That's the first treaty ever to recognize protestants and in this treaty is a little Latin phrase that made a big difference. It's cool ratio to religio, which means whose is The Rain? Is a religion? So in other words, look Protestant king, believe it ever you want in your kingdom. Let's just work together against these Muslims who are invading Europe because they sort of want to kill us all. Well, this started a domino effect in the next century where different kings fully different things. And Sweden and Germany were Lutheran Switzerland Calvin and Scotland Presbyterian England was Anglican Holland Dutch reform. And of course, Italy, Spain, France, Austria, remained

Fox's Brian Kilmeade Discusses His New Book 'The President and the Freedom Fighter'
"I'm talking to Brian kill me, you may know him from fox and friends, but he's written a lot of books. This one is called the president and the freedom fighter Abraham Lincoln Frederick Douglass in their battle to save America's soul. America soul could use a little saving right now. But we're not going to talk about that. What made you want to write a book combining these two figures? Well, I was looking for the last time I was here. You kind enough to interview me about Sam Houston, the Alamo Avengers. So I try to find an angle not plowed and the Alamo is, but San jacinto isn't 9 months later he ends up taking him out as San jacinto beating Santa Anna in 17 minutes because Texans know it, but the rest of the world. So I go, what's next? The Mexican war, I didn't think had enough. My opinion, I'm sure there's a lot there with Lee in the quartermaster grant and the fact that these generals fought on the same side and then years later, they'd be trying to kill each other and a lot of them successfully. I said, all right, the Civil War. What could I do that's not plowed ground from Ken burns a series to the remarkable book, David blight wrote about Frederick Douglas Scott? I think the book of the year, 5 years ago. And then what about Lincoln? I literally you and I gave the same situation. We get books about linking to our desks all the time, and they're all great. I'm waiting for nobody who's written been written about more. It's like maybe three people like who've written about Napoleon Jesus, Lincoln. I mean, I don't know how many books have been written about Lincoln. So yeah, what do you do for a fresh angle on the Civil War? So what I wanted to do is also I didn't mind tackling race, but I wanted to do it through quotes, not opinion. And racist never left the news, Black Lives Matter is raging at the time. And then you have you have a situation where as late as Condoleezza and rice Condoleezza Rice on the view, having to defend herself growing up in a Jim Crow south who knew all about racism, but grew up as his conservatives says, don't ever let it be an excuse. So I said, what have I talk about their parallel lives to the degree in which they read a lot of the same books? Did they overcame incredible obstacles? Nothing like Frederick Douglass. I get it. The guy was enslaved until he was in his 20 years old, two tries, got out in the second time within 7 years has a biography. It's a bestseller, and then starts a world tour and becomes famous in Scotland, Ireland, Germany, and England. This guy was a slave ten years before, but decides to come back to America because his 4 million enslaved 350,000 slave owners and he sees potential in this guy Lincoln and the Republican Party that we're finally ready to do

Marc Morano: Most Countries Are in It for the 'Cold Climate Cash'
"Welcome back to the man who told me more than anybody else about the climate hoax, Mark marano. I wrote about it, that moment in my second book why we fight. I have a photograph from the back of the rose garden for me. It had nothing to do with my remit national security. But it was my proudest moment in The White House when president Trump stood up in the rose garden, beautiful sunny June day, pulled us out of the Paris climate treaty called because it wasn't a treaty and said that the famous line that will echo down through the ages. I was elected by the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris, you're damn right. That's why the president removed us. The fact is, these things are absurd because they punish us and we are even cleaner today now thanks to president Trump than the requirements of the Paris accord, demanded of us whilst others like China and Russia are either unaffected unlimited or Mark. They get money from us to continue polluting. Am I missing something here? No, you're absolutely right. These countries are eager to come to the United Nations climate summit. So much so that they lifted the vaccine COVID vaccine mandate in Scotland. No, this is anywhere else you travel in Europe. You've got to have a 7 day at least in the U countries. You have to have a 7 day quarantine or 8 day quarantine, but they lifted it because they want these countries to come in because the only way they can entice them is with cold, hard cash. Of course, filtered through the United Nations. And the United Nations is seeking to pay the countries in the developing world who are best able to keep their citizens locked in poverty. This money will go to the leaders of these countries, not to do anything for the environment or to help their people. It's going to end up helping these leaders get reelected, building monuments, stadiums, ensuring their political machines are well funded. The UN knows politics. They are experts. They're not climate experts, but they're political experts. And this is the reason that you see all of these countries. In fact, the highest participation rates of these UN summits are usually African nations because they know the reason they're drawn there is the UN has offers of cold climate cash to go to these leaders around
'Green Fraud' Author Marc Morano Describes the Hypocrisy of These Climate Summits

Did you just get back from what is ObamaCare, Scotland, completely fallaciously, the emerald isle? Where have you been Mark? I have been in the emerald well actually, I think that's Ireland. I've been in Scotland and I did not get to go. I was there for all last week. I did not get to go in one of these private jets like Jeff Bezos or Bill Gates or Al Gore, who were all at the conference as well. I had to fly commercial, but I was there all last week at this Glasgow summit and it was a doozy because I think even the longtime observers are saying, this is as Greta would say, a blah, blah, blah, summit. Not much has happened here except a lot of virtue signaling. So what is this? They're using this acronym cop. I didn't realize it's now running for multiple weeks. Well, what is this? What is this virtue signaling stand for and who, who is their Mark? Well, this is the United Nations climate summit. Cop stands for conference of parties. Bureaucratic language that they have every year. So next year's cup 27. This year's cop 25. And this whole process started in 1992 with the Rio earth summit that then Republican president George H. W. Bush signed and got us beholden to this big monster mess and then of course the first climate agreement they came up with was the Kyoto protocol when Clinton was president. And it's been going strong since then, annual basis. And they always pick exotic location. Scotland's probably the least exotic location that they've had it. I've been the Bali South America cancun all over the world. Next year is going to be in Egypt. They like to fly all over and have giant

"Apparently Camilla Prince Charles wife can't stop talking about Biden passing wind. Loudly. Can't stop talking about it. Now, I never thought I'd talk about passing gas on the Mike Gallagher show. There's a four letter word that starts with F that's pretty crude that most people use. I don't know. That's not one of the 7 dirty words, right Eric. I mean, we I don't think so, but I don't like saying it. I think passing wind is better. I talked to Mark Davis about it this morning in Dallas, I thought he was going to fall off the chair. President Biden, according to the daily mail and sources to the mail, Biden let out a long, loud, well, passing wind, while speaking, with Camilla Parker Bowles at the climate change summit. She hasn't stopped talking about it. It has been reported. The pair were making small talk at the global climate change gathering in Scotland when the president broke wind. The source told the outlet, it was long, it was loud, and it was impossible to ignore. And Camilla hasn't stopped talking
"scotland" Discussed on Best Case Worst Case
"A small fraction of those would be prosecuted and an even smaller fraction of those would end in convictions. So there's there's just there's a problem in this country and apparently in scotland and probably around the world in dealing with these cases these offenders are able to get away with such a heinous crime more series of crimes because our system is not dealing with the facts that these cases are difficult to prove. But you put it in front of a jury and expect. Csi sort of you know presentation and don't get it and then don't find the person guilty even though it's a very credible victim with evidence of of sexual assault and for whatever reason they don't buy it. Let's talk about like prosecution. Let's talk about what makes these cases so difficult to prosecute I'm pro law enforcement pro prosecution. I wanna give my breath and around the world a bit of a bit of a break although not a big one because some of these statistics i think are simply inexcusable. I just don't think they can be defended but let's talk about how hard these cases are. The there's something. Obviously fundamentally different when you were array versus an armed robbery or carjacking. Let's take a car jackie. Someone took your car. No one really is ever gonna dispute that. Someone took your car that you're a crime victim question. Is the guy sitting in the box. The one who did it right. That's that's the question that's all that has to be approved but in a rape or sexual assault case. What's the what's the defense. It's always consent. So it's she want and of course they're male victims do but just for ease..

"Comfortable so the stage is set. The microphones are switched on. We settled into our comfy chairs under audience is waiting. Could you make a noise oysters to be sure. We know you're there. I'm Ken Gordon. I run the refugee voices Scotland podcast. It's a personal project of Maine. We've been running for two years now and if your subscribers listened to for thanks it's really cool that we meet people who've actually listened to it so this is a co production between refugee. The Voice Scotland University of Glasgow UNESCO chair in refugee integration through language and the arts and refugee for the wonderful facilities. Ah Hijab or are you doing nice to meet you you're looking PhD student at the University of Glasgow. You're also an intern for the Palestinian Estonian Arabic online project. Yeah the higher. The one thing that we always do in these podcasts is just ask people. What's on their mind? What's on your mind today? In one hundred years ref we shop the first thing. That's in my mind that I'm happy. It's sunny today unlike yesterday. And the second thing that's in my mind since we're talking about refugees there's a I tell you a little bit of history. Yeah so I'm Palestinian from Gaza and I'm not sure if people know about the whole Palestinian Israeli conflict but it it started like in one thousand nine hundred forty eight and because Israel started their estate created their states. They had to expel people from their villages. When I say people I mean Palestinians who are living there for a long time and as they explode those people those people started to move to other areas and then eventually they became refugees? So Amirah Fiji Ah in one of the most populated refugee camps in Gaza. My parents are refugees. Migrant parents are piggies so it's like like three generation of refugees and you can tell like how many years we've been refugees and They you were Help those refugees get you know the main basics for the lives I with my grandparents and they give them tens and then people people started to build their own houses. Because sometimes when I say that a refugee and I live in a refugee camp I people will be like all and then I would. I don't understand why they they say that because in my mind it's not a big deal because a normalized and internalize allies in me. But then I started to get to know that even a refugee. It has like Norman normalize idea in people's mind that just that person and who lives in a tent. Well it's true for you know other crisis but for Palestinians. Just we tried to you know to move on on and I don't live in a tent. I live in house to floor house. So yeah this is me as a refugee third-generation third generation refugee. So what I want to talk about as well I said that everything internalized in me and then because I loved my I hope my whole life there. My parents live their whole life there so I didn't see anything different. That would make me compare between what I live. And then how other people live so I got a scholarship to get my masters in the USA and then spend their two years and then it was really really like the first two years of my life. So when when I when I started to have I was full of energy. Discover the World Meet New People and all these things and it's worked and then by the end of the second year I had like my own community. You know my friends and then I had to leave back to Gaza so I knew it is going to be hard because I will not see my friends But it turned out. It's not only because I will not see. My friends is because I will have something to compare to like. What's going on in Gaza and what what happened to like all these experiences I had in the USA so going back to Gaza? There's no no insecurity. There is no stability. There's no electricity. There is no access to clean water. Sometimes we wouldn't have have water at home like even all these things I wouldn't I wouldn't imagine that they're that bad but because I was exposed to new new environment that showed me what what are the basic rights that people from other countries have and we don't have so and and some of these things like for example access to water like I didn't I didn't I didn't say I didn't get it until until one of my friends pointed that out to me because in Gaza We get water for three or four hours a day and and during these hours we have we have like engine that will push water in big tank and sometimes would feel a lot of Like would fail the bathtub as well so that would have water to clean or do all these things add. It was normal to me. You know I didn't know this. This is bad but when when my pointed that out to me I was like. Oh yeah this is not right. You know so Besides there there were there would be a lot of collisions in Gaza. Like Bombini. And you know really horrible not not like war were just like is collisions. So sometimes I would go to work and then I would just freak out because there will not VC's fire so there would be skeletons and you know. Sometimes they would boom car and then just just in my mind that maybe AH car. I'm in maybe this guy in this tax is targeted. Maybe I'll die. And then you know just I go to the work and I go back mccomb and just the same thing until ceasefire is announced or whatever it is so yeah it was pretty hard like going going back after the. US spending two years in Gaza because it made me feel like how unfair the world is and help people. Just don't appreciate she it all these things in their lives you know and then After spending two years in Gaza enduring all these things like I was with my family and would live the same things but it affected me differently because I started to think that this is not right. This is not supposed was to happen so now I got another scholarship from the British Council to get my PhD. And let me tell you one thing. I think I started to recover cover from my reverse culture shock going back together up. Maybe like I started to feel that going back to myself. Maybe like a month ago because I think in my first year I wouldn't be like I don't know it say. I felt that I wasn't right because it was recovering. But now I feel I'm almost there. I started to recover. Well that's great news. Yeah we'll come back thank you and so. How long have you been? This started in Glasgow. Yeah so long beating Glasgow and three months so you spent quite a lot of time here. Still recovering yeah okay. How did that manifest itself in you? When you're you're still feeling like you're having reverse culture shock? How does that feel what? What does it make you do here? So for example. We don't have electricity in Gaza. We only have like four hours so at the beginning. Freak out if my phone is one percent because it's like if it's back home you know that you leave maybe wake up and your phones I it but here is just is not the same. I hate fireworks. I really hate fireworks because it just sometimes I'm with my friends is and their fireworks and unlike only there's Kelly there's something wrong sometimes. I feel like I'm stupid. Because or maybe I'm a very much sensitive person which I don't know yet but there was. This is this to this thing that I've ever felt once I was sleeping and then the curtain were open and then the street light was like the street lights here there and the yellow so that yellow light sometimes whenever there's bomb there's a flash similar look yellow flesh before the bomb so that lies just freaks me out like I if you best pass by my house. My curtains is always close ause because that lies freaks me out is just reminds me of that light before the bomb goodness me. Yeah I mean I don't know I'm I'm not sure how I feel all these things because my friends. I'm not sure if they feel the same. I don't know just happens. I e all these Adia just come to me reverse culture shock is something. I'd not hair dove until now I mean it's different from one country to another so if view have reverse culture shock if you were in California and then came to Glasgow there verse culture would be The weather is bad. I'm not used to the weather in. We know what reverse goes. Yeah but it depends on the place you know. Thank you for sharing interesting. Have you met many other Palestinian refugees around Glasgow. Well not really. I knew three Palestinians who got scholarships here and two of them and they're from the West Bank they're not refugees and the other one. She's originally from Gaza so she's not refugee but you know all those experiences dances. The don't differ that much from a refugee a non refugee Palestinian because of just the same. There's is Kelly we all in the same and you know we're on the same situation so it doesn't vary that much when we were having at the beginning. You were talking about refugee anger. Yeah yeah elaborate on that well. I can't elaborate in there. But sometimes I feel the media especially like the Western media. They like to portray refugees in specific picture so that other people would sympathize with them and I totally understand that but at the same time when. There's a picture of a refugee that I don't remember remember that I've I've seen it but because I'm so angry. Okay I just makes me more angry. When when they don't show that anger that the refugees Jeez they endure because of all these injustices and I wish that they would once they would show that refugees? They're humans yes. They feel sad the feel pain. They feel happiness whenever they get any kind of aids the feel Arnaud. They've all these feelings beside they feel angry as well. It's not only that. Oh look at them. They're I'm sad because because of their suffering offering a look at them I said because they feel happy because the we give them floor or give them a bit bit of money now but they're really angry like no one would like to be suffering that much or to be be living in a situation where he or she doesn't have the basic needs like most of those people who sympathize with them have so yeah I just want to say that refugees get angry but I'm not sure if they show it because maybe they don't have enough energy energy because I think anger needs so much energy maybe all their energy is wasted in sadness and suffering. What would your advice be to any refugees? Jeez that are listening to this in Glasgow right who feel angry. I mean I would tell them. Take your time feel sad. Tried writer adapts. And once you feel that you're angry don't don't be scared to show because you're just human. Don't be scared because you have different passport. That says that you're Fiji. You cannot get angry. Don't don't be scared to show in your anger if you're at the airport and you people people deal with you in a different way because your passport says that you're you're human. You're British Scottish Tisch. But you now you have different password. Heard the term. New Scott's yeah what do you think about well. I like it because because I read about the program so I think it's mainly for the Syrian refugees. Who came right okay? So I only read the part about Syria winds coming and the calling them new scots. I read it because because of education wise not like political wise and all these things but I really like it. I think here people in Scotland they care much about refugees even like normal people. Sometimes I would walk doc and people would have like a post I say I welcome refugees or you know just if feels good that they're they're people just normal people who care and you know they want you to feel home and I think the program is well organized because they focused on the language I I that you need to learn the language and they give those people the chance to represent their culture alive..

"We don't have knowledge in general and Scotland uh-huh so that's such valuable thing to in terms of legacy and what's your what's other projects you're looking forward to to be the next legacy Agassi project. The next product will look into doors. It's an addition to what we are doing to look at transport okay for the CF. Each year or issue round of funding Europe life for need to show additionality something new that you're going to so what we have in mind at the moment still under lease which is to introduce an outcome around transport and as my own opinion at least not uh-huh yet formalized as I said earlier on we have we attract foreigners people coming from abroad. I think that might be these. People fly to Scotland and flying obviously is not good for the environment so what we could do is to you. Obviously do they want to see how the they traveled to to the UK or recruitment And then uh this these people about alternative or epo ways of travelling. I encourage people to buy three an in order by bus. And then you know one of the behavior of these people and then we can. We can see because we have a baseline and we know people use to fly. And this is how much carbon emission they used to to create and now they're going by bus or train and this how much carbon emission the could he hit and then we can compare the two. So that's that's an exciting area and then another area that we're considering torture work with schools. WHO's the local schools here in the teachers? The students independence but we are at the moment. We are exploring. Auden these these these ideas until you've got a fantastic list of things that you do in this relatively small area this beautiful building. What other skills vote talk to you teach? Okay we're on gloss on on the weekend inside so so is computer class begins for Arabic speakers so we actually that you speak in Arabic Midi attended by series Uh so they deter would teach participants busy competitive skills you know how to create your own military's health shop online how formation facebook unsold so for people with no computer knowledge at all this is very useful to confine their own is talking point to increase it. Looks kills so this is really popular. And as I said they take place every Saturday to clauses eleven till one and how foreign policy and how many people are in those classes. I think another ten people not attending each plus mixed when we started we started with. We Miss Class. I and close by then. We decided that I'm experience would be more appropriate every Saturday. That's a Lotta a Lotta people learning digital scale. This is it is at the you. So you mentioned everyone has to be over. Eighteen are already programs that are particularly designed for younger younger people with about a year ago so I was approached by A couple of people from the Indian community who are saying you know the young people they don't have access to any activities outside else I can help them with creating someone gave her. DVD's for them because the welcoming did not work with young people. Do we contacted other organizations. In this example it was the Spartans Community Football Academy in North Edinburgh so pericles bill. Football Academy means lovely facilities ooh We knew for a long time so we got in touch with them and the the the the opportunity so now hosting a weekly session for the CDN people say twelve Every Sunday play football table tennis. They have a a communicable where people come play. the play station for young people on white labeling that from time to time the invited speaker somebody to speak to them about a specific issue. That's important so that partnership allowed us to support the people who don't directly work with them but we have access to park the notice and other organizations. Who can do that? And I'm really pleased that the SPARTANS is leading the out and a very successful product which is often the Ford initiated by coming. What do you see? The future of the welcoming association welcomed project. I think appreciate is getting I think the way coming has future because you know the woodwork. That we do here But again funding is never you can never say you know. I know. They're going to get funding. Our have a good track record I talk for my productivity killing the product. I think we are making really would impact and I'm sure would have an opportunity to due to get more funding by these competitive sector and This will acities. You don't know you know what's going to happen looking at our traffic. Was I think would be would be fine. If someone's listening to this what to do next will send individual then our website you know. Kick out what we do.

"The Fisher project because we do home visits so we go to people's home about vice about how to save how to use in the deficiently recycling system in Edinburgh how it works because as you can imagine Meighan. It'll these people come from Brooklyn climate. They're not used to heating systems and the wizard in decline in Scotland. So they need that. Help help from us to Go over he thinks the programmers the bills at the recycling. I'm so it's really useful. Say This I think that we are providing to the comedian. Say Money as well. I think I think Scottish people okay. Even though the Scottish people from Scotland they also don't get used to extremes of weather hot spell and everyone complaining. Yeah Yeah So. It mentioned a great project right at the very beginning. Can you tell me about the incoming clear. Future Project started five years. School is funded by the Climate Kelly Front squats government. I knew administered by keeping Scotland. Beautiful This most recent funding we go two year funding and There are three or four outcomes attached to that The first first one is about home visits where we go out to visit Syrian families in their own home give them advice about home deficiency and recycling and saw saw the other outcomes about climate literacy where we bought the different welcoming classes English language classes and talk about climate related public with recycling glass. Dick or even information. You know what this climate king what Causes Climate Jake game on what are the effects of climate. And what can you do as an individual to help package. Climate Change so climate literacy is a very important outcome for us and And we are doing very well. Actually because of the nature of the whittling that we have a pool of people coming to us so struggling. But I'd like to find people talk to. Here's a question. What is the most difficult thing to to educate people of climate change? Because it's a eddie very big thing is tricky thing to get people to remember or understand. I think do things. Yeah Yeah for some people coming from The global developing countries coming to live in the UK. They might not have the same notion about climate. So there's a lot of work to be done there. There is there so in this. Some people is struggling to find the benefit of tackling climate kink. Unless you say you can also save money you see because we will come to your house. need to put the heating on twenty four hours in your bill. Will it'd be very high. So what advice we give you will help you save money as well as protecting the vitamin so joining the two that to help us to to brexit terminology right name was playmate crisis. How do you feel about as a person I feel through facing the climate crisis I think would be even more in the future I believe that people should stop to think seriously about what they do on day to day. life and what they can do to reduce the dead foot the carbon footprint. There's also interesting subject. I'm actually you can explore is climbing justice or injustice year for me coming from Africa I know for that. There is very little carbon emission in Africa because of very low industry look less travel and sold so in other words the western countries Youtube America they emit of carbon emission African in poorer places in Asia versus the emit very little however the consequences are filled more by the poorer countries Dan the Western countries and we call that climate injustice. You causing trouble. I suffer more for example when Hue Akin Katrina. I think the United States a few years ago when it happened the most people who suffer where the black ethnic minority the homeless and the poor. Because they're not able to evacuate quickly. Don't have things to places to go. Why would not victim ugly because the details of six Similarly on a on a global level in Africa Medicare is are feeling. Aw Poor really because the racism has changed because of climate change People are able to predict there in the beginning of the season so they can start planting their crops on they suffer because of the deforestation addition People Migrate from one place to another because they did here is is is no longer suitable for agriculture because because of climate change it causes less disturbance to the communities who live there to have claimed at refugees. You have calamities. Tiffany is actually people say the problem is Syria stopped because of climate change because on one area I think they were Because of climate change agriculture was down People were unemployed in numbers so people started to fit. I played and started to race against the government. And that's how the thing is committed so yes climate terrific. I think. That's that's the future. I can feel your interest and passion for the subject. Yes on your such great stuff. Here Junior uh-huh people going into actually going into people's homes and show them how to be more efficient and everything you need to do to save money and also reduce the carbon footprint MHM The other. Outcome is is about food growing really exciting project. We started in April two thousand eighteen and we managed to secure an allotment nearby and the food growing project consists of people going to to to Get used to planting again new skills and mixed with other people and also we go go to people's homes and held them to to grow food in their own gardening and we help them. You know building raised beds communal building in compost Mama uh-huh equipment and so on so that's really really useful for the community and Do that we work in in partnership with so many organizations whether they're CCF funded or or or not and we also a lot of number of here's especially for the garden and Part of the CCF product encourage you to create a legacy of your project so when the funding is finished what is going to be there. So I think we've been really successful on Establishing legacies or creating ladies for the project for example in two thousand sixteen We stabbed social enterprise. The legacy of the project now social enterprises about running and they're doing better will Making reusing Dick Style to create new ideas clothing and handbags and things like that And we also have a legacy of resorts bank that we have coming which contains topics selected to climate change. So teachers can come anything. Look about the plan to do with environmental clinique and they can use use that as a teaching material for the class We are also considering working with CDN artists to create the new social in the price where this artist would work with CDN women to create take what record called textile up using recycled materials. And stuff so I think their legacies very important than an an and I think we've been successful in that area and as the defenders would like to see there is something left after the end of the project so as I said that would be the city of community and we're really in a managed to dander terrorist. I'm there would links with them because we offer package once. We offer a full package of of of of service and support to this community. For example could come here to learn English. We go to them talk about climate change and Khomeini we have befriending project so each it can be assigned befriended As I said earlier on we have unemployment worker who helps them writing their. CV's finding jobs hopes and so on and plus it's more products like Scotland for newcomers for this week liberal each. What is the Guam visit with a place where this Akassim or museum or a park so they go in a group from the welcoming? All New People Very very popular because people is really good in a group to hit some somewhere. So you know where you're going you meet people on the way the group members they're going with you can meet friends with them So yeah there's so many things going on though is coming it. It strikes me that you're teaching people and climate change skills and climate change awareness in a way that lots of us don't.

People come out classes security countries from over sixty countries I would say mainly Europeans. We did the research or survey recently and Italians audience and Spanish are the minority for participants. However a couple of years ago we started to engage with the Syrian refugees irving is through the Edinburgh Council seat in the program were partners in that program and therefore we we do what was serious as coming here to learn English or enjoying other activities to help them integrate in the community? So we have we've been we've been fortunate position to be partners in that. What is it mixed cripple male and female female over eighteen? We don't work still doing at the moment though the will look into into that but so far we what was eighteen plus. How long did the courses lost English is it? Continuing for years is a drop in Dropping clauses so people can come for a month or two months six months so is very very flexible when no unlike Fixed with a specific course that you need to complete the dropping nature actually attracts people dos. People don't don't feel obliged to you know to stick to a course because as you know people some people come here just for the short holiday or for some work and going back home so this idea for the. There's no commitment in terms of time under you. Can you can stop anytime you can attend as many classes as you want east gloss About two hours and is completely you talked about people finding work. Is there a focus on trying to help the people to get into work with. We actually have a worker. Who dedicated for that? So we have unemployment guidance Colleague who help people writing their CV's applying for qualities finding jobs and so on. So that's yes we do have that. How long do people stay with you and stay connected team? It depends for example the Europeans who come to us there it depends on their own circumstances. You know some people here are here for a short period and then they go back to their country over something. We're here for longer. And they will stay for us that long list. They had full time and they couldn't come in. Wi- with the Syrians is kind of more Glenn commitment because as I said we're partners with the city of council and receive funding from them to do that integration work so is more kind of ongoing commitment with the Syrian community. Okay so you get to know people potato we do. Let me do pretty well either through them coming here. Yeah or visit them at home as part of what.

"Oh boys in the coming year maintenance. The numbers of arrivals have increased increased massively recently. So it's really hard for us to look at that twelve month plan at the moment and to sort of look at how we grew in in projects and stuff because when we're delivering one hundred and twenty well compacts a month. That's a big push each month. That is hard on top of that. We've got thirty to forty buggies and we've got two big community unity. Proper prevents all the donations. An Open Mike here and there to know all of this stuff that we enjoy leading feeds our soul as well chats with schools schools and workplaces running donation drives. All of that stuff needs to happen. So for one hundred and twenty welcome back. That was difficult. Last month. We delivered two eight hundred seven. Welcome pacts to recently arrived people in Glasgow so numbers are increasing so we need to be able to respond to that and we don't know whether that will continue. Its nobody ever knows but we need to be able to react to that if it is to continue if someone's listening listening to this and wants to get involved in to help. What's the first and foremost check the website? The website is where we're not trying to put as much information in as possible as the surf first point of call. We do also have a refugee volunteers. FACEBOOK group. We also have a WHATSAPP group. There's going to be a link on the website this week to be able to join that WHATSAPP group from the website. And then there's also our mailing list what she can do through the website as well. The events page page on the website is probably the best place to check what we're not too. When the pop ups go on their community events going there and welcome Pat Building Dis Gore upon on their at anytime? We're looking for volunteer to get involved. The picture for the event will be a little placard. Come along to something whether it's a volunteer event or aw come along to something like tonight.

"A distance because you know you've created a different reality in the space and so you're in a character which means you're not you whereas in a in a situation situation like this I can as an artist be myself and present music that way as an opera singer you are yourself in there under the wig and the make up. Ah Your responsibility is to step into another character. Portrayed someone else's life. I'm what I can bring to. This is my life experience. My feelings my emotions as a collective elective with the orchestra. And that's a very unusual thing to be able to do. What are the things that transmitted for me was just pure joy? Yes and that is what for me is so inspiring very often as an opera singer. You're not at home. You're on the road you're alone and that's an incredibly probably a lonely existence in which to make music and so with this group we travel together. We laugh together. We cry together. We sing together. We jammed together and and we make music together and that experience Intergroup is really powerful and it's also powerful for us to be able to connect with people who may not. Have you ever heard classical music before. been up close to it. And that's also bridging a gap because people often classical music is out of touch out of reach is too expensive. Not Accessible. Won't understand the words when in actuality classical music is just music. So that's why I find. The idea of reaching teaching people through this art form is the perfect perfect vehicle. And what's what's the next few. Well I have two sides to my life. I work for BBC radio. Scotland and I do a lot of documentary work on civil rights and so my next project is operatic but Inbetween I try to find ways to tell all stories through radio and the next big project that I'm doing is trimmed which is Scott Joplin. Opera is the first black opera from America. Ever written and Scott Joplin is the slide pianist and so it features. An african-american story told through jazz blues. Slide piano opera and European classical music and the project runs for the next eighteen months in North America so that is my next big GIG if we have listeners in north North America and we probably do we are in north. America are in May and California. This is through the volcano theater and we are in Stanford and we are also at Berkeley at the beginning of May. And if you're in North America keep an eye out TREMOLO volcano theatre in Toronto turn. There are more dates coming throughout America. So keep your eyes peeled and it's easy to find us on social media like you so much for speaking to me. Thank you very much. Thank you for coming Selena. Got Really quiet now it has. It's gone really quiet. I don't like the everything's gone. They've all finished. The Orchestra. Orchestra has left the building so friend of the podcast as ever facility now. This seems like an annual event. We catch up. What's been happening in the last year a year and refugee if time to fit it all in there is never attained to fit? It's also really difficult to talk about time periods when we just go by the by you just sort of play through but yea since last December world. We've got this space we've got a space on buyers rued. Incredibly lucky to have this beautiful event space. I was actually chatting to somebody earlier and I described it as if we were if we were dead port and we had one of those houses that Hadley guest room like the the posh eleven rim the only the only guests are allowed to go and this is our late. It's our portion in the bregger. The donation space is like the whole cupboard that nobody dares open the door and it was only when I was saying that actually captures what this is all about. The buyers route is to give us an office space. That takes us a we from the macy chaotic vibrant fun brilliant space is the donation space. But the just a little bit room to think thank and then it's also a little popo space that we can do events late tonight and that we can have open mics. We can have workshops. We can host amazing organizations. We've had universities. Use the space with private companies uses base. And it means that we you're bringing in income the get to do something for us as a refugee support organization and whilst also needing space in the city to do do whatever they do so it's a lovely little it's just a lovely little hub of community stuff and tonight is a great example over this afternoon where we had people dropping into say hi people dropping into finite how they can help and then a stupendous performance. German spy nervous on symbol and last time we spoke you were talking about shortages and needs of things like buggies and stuff like that dot going in the donations nations site and also you talked to boat you pop up events that you were doing. You're you're giving stuff away. POPs have been transformed. It's amazing are POPs. What was our this exactly what we say for them to be there a bringing together of people from all over Glasgow to pick up things that they need and it's don in a way that structured it's not exclusive? I suppose is the word I mean in that. It's not an exclusionary because it's complicated it. It's a very straightforward. You can be booked on you might be UCONN. There will be volunteers and people there who will know that you've been before four if you've been before and you will be asked to either. Just wait half an hour Wilson. People who've never been before Gwen or or or to just head the street and we know no and I feel much more confident saying that I think last year I was just getting to the point of saying. I think we might have figured out what we're doing now. I feel really confident. In seeing we knew how to run their event successfully and that doesn't doesn't come easy to somebody who still thinks that they're winging their way through life but I think we've got IT I. I really think we've got it. We've doubled the a number of volunteers at as well. So we've got more mines and more folk helping problem solve anything that we come across so the pop ups are going brilliantly. We still see one hundred fifty two hundred people a month at those donations are phenomenal at the moment as well and people poll again we center founder feet in terms of how we get the things we actually need. We don't shy away from seeing if you wouldn't give it to someone you do. Oh please don't give it to someone you don't and people really seemed to have responded to that so we know get winter jackets. We get winter. Footwear we get toiletries. Toiletries and stationery and hats and gloves and scarves that we need. We no longer get some were droops and the stuff. That's the whole cupboard was talking about earlier we get the specifics. And that's really really important. It makes far easier to to welcome people but we've also moods of new partners and that always makes life far easier and whether that partner is Somebody Light Nevis Ensemble from tonight who can deliver the most phenomenal capture of community and of coming together as people through music. Yeah it blows lose my mind whether it's that or whether it's somebody late repair cuffy Glasgow who we work with to recycle up cycle. Repair the prams impeached. Here's that get donated. The have taken sole march of I were so much of the Admin side. Uh of the BUGGY and prime donations of her hands the it just completely changes. We do things. So they're currently running crowd under the. I would encourage anybody that wants to support refugee to support them because if people support them we can get twice the number of buggies out that we can if we are not if don't exist details of that in the notes yeah that would be amazing. They are the they basically take the bit of the bug impromptu donations that we can't handle as an organization so we can't repair them. We can't spend time cleaning them and enter of up cycling them whereas if we can get into neater to repair Kathy they can do all of that stuff and then we can get them out to family so much quicker so they are. Yeah the IT's working with Organiz organizations like that that have made refugee be able to grow the way. It's grown over the last year. And what's in the coming year..

"Fight. It's it's nice to see you. Everyone can come together and make something happen and it was all on the basis of the little boy with those he said there sure no matter how much extra stuff you get. That's still not enough. No had I think a lot of organizations in China who worked without level luke distribution and passing on things. I think we all see my goodness. It really helps helps. I individual helps that family. The time is completely needed and allows people to feel missile luther. Doing some fun can be really hard to to want to help them. Thank you want me to do especially. If you're a peden responsibilities you can't just most people just to say took off again so can be able to donate to be financially whether it be stuff and it can help people feel involved and part going to wait or project but yes you're right. You know it doesn't it doesn't solve the problem. The little boy went away bones on <hes> but that doesn't change them. What do you wish you'd known long before? He started such a good question because I've been thinking about that a lot recently. I wish I don't what about developmental trauma I wish I had known more attachment and I wish I focused more on support and patents rather than children should be the best way to support a child is to support the patience to continue that stable attachment until the capture after them and the best we possibly can and I think it's hard for volunteers going into camps with Nori my youth for I'm a opened appearance to to support their children and sort of provide them with resources allow. They've been the ones to get the children the boots at distribution because quite often the kids would play not for Oregon with the way it was the we would manage. We it would be handled. Are we were top. Biscuits may be you know what story tame enough to kind of choosy. I wished appearance and been doing and I wish we could have empowered them to do that and we did. Certain extent especially with younger children are toddlers Babies Day findlay. I wish that more of that and I wish I could have understood that award at the time and again to do this again. If you were would that be possible nor not just any and between among most young person who's going through this island process <hes> someone I met in flatts on no. I look after head so I'm very committed. It's a it's all my all much open and second. I couldn't leave have indisputable when these through what's going through just to meet some insurance is he's one of the young people and he's he's wonderful and he's incredibly resilient and capably fiercely total phone but he's in a really difficult situation when through so much as I can really be anybody else you mentioned things three things that you wish you'd known more about Developmental Trauma Attachment and parental support when doc developmental trauma. What does that mean for me. It's been a really steep learning curve. I I have one youth work different things for work but didn't really fully understand the impact of trauma and impact when there's been lots said recently about A._C.'s adverse childhood experiences. There's lots of talk about that and newspapers and you know all the different ideas of you can have an e score in this can show tell you what could potentially happen in your life in terms of your health and wellbeing. What can what that traumatic relief can then become Bloomington if you like. I don't think got a full understanding of until I started looking after my young person on for me. It's been a huge huge learning curve to cap the different parts of his behavior and how you paid and look after. I don't Paerson who's going through. You know what their behavior scare what they see or how it seems highly behave in a war war. Is that really like self sabotaging behavior not being able to sort of take positives not being able to complemented all these different things just sometime surely small or sometimes much much bigger so I would have loved afternoon one of Atlanta before I went to France and to understand why the children behave the way they do and how something that may come across as one behavior is really yes. I know something attachment attachments a huge thing for me. There's there's lots of unaccompanied asylum seeking children in Scotland. I think Linda who make Andre one hundred and fifty something like that not Massey's but you know there's some but if you think about your young adult asylum seekers who you're eighteen and going through the asylum says they've perhaps started their journey seniors four years ago in some cases shouldn't will travel traveled through different countries of applied for asylum that failed the feudal gone through all these different things in traffic being exploited. I'm not that strong but they took place and sort of cater or someone to give them that strong secure attachment and everyone needs in their life especially someone who's gone through through so much harm the top knowledge can have their and the attachment that that person will be there no matter whoa no matter who they try and push a week perhaps because they're frightened they'll get wound and can allay again or they're frightened that something happens without deletion ship so much award won't that attachment relationship is totally important a young person regardless of what their backgrounds are two cutlass where they're from but it's the kind of young adults asylum-seekers the ocean who's got their box. WHO's looking after them. Who's has been that can among thicker or not but you know what I mean. So I think actually important something I would love to see more of happenings. What more can I greater understanding of the worst. We talk about about wanting to be the best place best place in what. Oh for children and young people to grow up with. I love that can happen. We need lots to be the source starting point of all these different journeys and the way we look after and care for people we need law at the heart of all the processes that's homesick tactical through under teams from my reading these things the opposite of and and it's a bit of a bitter fine. I think all some people can I think a lot of what's going on. We're talking about immigration stats. We're talking about numbers. We're talking about these. People come back. I wonder how much money should always cannot fundamentals and I get understand thought you can't. There's there's poolside since we have to strip says no matter how much we lake them agree with them or have you. There's there's paperwork. You know what different thing there's interviews and there's all these different things tmz until we can value everyone in society then then Puerto Rican teen until we can look at I don't comparison see them for what they are or not and see them and get them kate and nurture then four Arthur Lee CIANCI's ultimately. We look after unaccompanied asylum-seeking children's clearly a huge issue for you. Yes and hope will the catheter young adult asylum-seekers takers because I think I think we have to remember that when we think of our children we don't necessarily think aqua. They're fully eighteen never darkened her door. Again I think there's an understanding these stone need support eighteen even if they think they do you know even if they're quite happy to fly off into the what they still need the stony something it fall back on and I think between unaccompanied asylum-seeking children and you know those late teen years we know that from school to show people we know that from our children it from education and care we know that young people between the ages of fifteen and twenty one thing might think they're adults. They may look like they're adults on Peter official but the reality is they are they still need support and they still need love and encouragement and someone to fall back on and that's something that particularly particular thing for me. The moment is particularly a big issue for me just because I look at this island processes services that we expect young people go through and buy that unaccompanied asylum-seeking children and also young adults and I think gosh is utterly rallied retraumatize on on hand on Heart Haiku we put her young people in that possession we would never think to a young person going through the criminal justice system in that position. We're talking at the moment in the papers about smart justice and hope we after victims of time and also how we look at dealing with perpetrators as claim as well but these people have done anything wrong. They're claiming asylum which is illegal right so we need to look how we meek. How Hey we look after them better? Now I get the immigration is a devolved matter in Scotland. Goodness knows how many people keep telling me that but health health and social care and education are so why is it the immigration continually trump's those other parts of our the Scottish government and our priorities for Scotland I look at the idea of nutty in being safe and healthy and achieve and all these wonderful positive things look pictographic getting it right for every child. Does the immigration process actually get it right for every child of course it doesn't if there's there's no way it can so for me. It's about right how we look at look after these young people and as between fifteen and twenty twenty one twenty two twenty head to look after them and make them feel cared for and really the and enveloped within Scotland within keer and communities. We're just starting point for that. Do you think that is I had a conversation received something. This morning or this care has to start when the ironic because otherwise we sort of lose we will lose our trust or we physically lose them or the the you just become middle swallowed up by processes. We have to remember that the people come on the young people come in. They're not just stop hydride. You can stop the other reasons for being here and they've all got the right to claim asylum and we need to look at high we can for wouldn't benefit the best and we welcome them into communities help weight based or will the capture them and make them feel safe and nurtured and secure because I think we've got an obligation to to them. Regardless of four parts of policier devolved or not so Lindsey. What's on your mind? Gosh the immigration system uh-huh immigration system is most definitely on my mind because we're going through that moment. I think I'd always seen the allegation system. You know you always read about immigration system. You'll look at the weakest people clean asylum until it spend your house. It's a different so then dictation systems on my main just mental health for young people Scottish on people. I'm sure just as much as unaccompanied young young people Cleveland asylum all those are issues that we need to try and improve on as I said earlier I think love and safety and security and nurture needs to come much closer to the forefront of dealing with our young people and looking after them than it currently does Lindsay. I'm so glad we connected on twitter me to thank you so much for this thank.

Bikes refugees started through a meeting that included Stephen a young gentleman from Syria called Yemen. And what Stephen describes as a bike shaped object refugee. Voices.

Well, let me tell your story story about, it's Scotland that came about a story, aboots, mind, omit, usual gentleman, from from was a refugee cold Yaman, and they got that I ain't and Canaan, bro much with no more than Clinton's Barack, and I think you have to see to something Lorne afraid about of what the future also made me bring having lefties finally maybe loved ones by Coleman and walked home of those things away. And not won't after lightning Yaman bought himself, be by from from country for ten fifteen just to help himself got owned explains news loans. The only problem was that the beat was more of our paycheck object, the walking walking, basically that was actually capable of, of getting anywhere. So Maceo and my partner base. We took care Yaman Dench of local bike. Shop to see for today. Get it fixed up and get one that would cut logs. The shorts the beach was repealing.

I so social has been quite quick central to the project has been very central at the style and continues to be, so that's a lot of people, particularly effigies Salem seekers link-up. But yeah. To physical all over widow with goal, but people started to contact with people like the guy and the bait shop give that for speak to Yemen wanted to do something they had seen the stories, let me say refugees asylum seekers, particularly from study, and Secondly, no shortage of people who just wanted to do something. And, and sometimes, you know, just a simple, thankfully, the core if nobody misinter- actually the scrape the jet less, and less as put more of a project that supports peoples inclusion and integration. And, and I think I think importantly as we think that when people at the saints approval, Mesa Joel Sola, down as well and say the people that you're welcome here. So I think that makes that makes a big difference. But, but yeah, two and a half years ago, people started to aids and very quickly. I suppose that started to about a problem as well, because we have no storage, also very quickly, my host start develop bakes. I had bakes chained up all day, and I'm Chris Coppola half the muster Lou this'll be it as real and settling no shortage of people wanting to help, but we had to paint storage, how to reach out and people who could help us to fix up under appeal aches, and we're no have full in tears, and Edinburgh and Glasgow, and who picks up eight so we have some really good partnerships as wheel when an Edinburgh, we have a partnership with a commute for Jay called Coppola, gee up. So we work closely with them and Glasgow. We have a close partnership with an established project associate of the cold coastal wiggles. So we have volunteers. From the fictional aches and disturb them today for jeez. Biggest demand for Nicely. nicely. And. And surprisingly as global. Saying the key population of Salem of posting Glasgow always always always always fifty six people waiting for aids and people here are pretty split to accessibly. If you're say. Say Glasgow some of the lessons make. No. If you say she can legally work and legally get also even claim state benefits, you know, so you're living off an alone today, so even even in public or is prohibitive. But you have some freedom of movement, particularly Glasgow, where you pretend to be hosted wings away from the city centre with a low of essential services, the kind of service that we take granted, you know, so just giving people that feeling of movement goes a long way to helping people just take khanate with central safeties and importantly, a little basically people helps people to connect with other people into people, meet feigns as Bill we have a volunteer, zipping, authors, matey, and Glasgow from star, whose Salem Sika. He's a great champion forsake Leno Hessel interest in one is also he, he also the one of the spikes from the poor jet he then when on volunteer, experts for his peers McAteer Beatty through some training, but he's actually left does not all he's still supports in other ways, but he's life doesn't that rolled and interesting what he's up has Kennedy Kujat, not the specs bakes for other beverage because but not bikes. Anybody and the trinity who become afford to access also, that's a look at that's the moment, but say, what really makes the project has the support begins forget from individuals who didn't bakes. But also also many power ships that the beget Israel and some place in creator partnerships. Which is Liz, what surprised you about where you've come on this journey tease, the Moton craze. Given what you go in the beginning surprise my question really surprised by the middle support. The people have come forward who who faulty about the skills that wasn't too surprising. Yeah. Before bikes refugees might professional by public, health and public health, hills, improvement and. Call coz diff'rent doesn't groups and populations including refugees, and say seekers off over the years, but before bikes when the refugee camp, the jumble, stole an offer, France and Palley myself. And so other people say up project, which shea bikes, but caravans and people would donate caravans or the words or automated, but fundraising the by kind of, on the with two fellow Philo, v- clothes and food in the paint and say to them, and we have a network of drivers who take eight a fruit essential eight refugee company for firms, and including used as shelters. And I think over the space of about. Over the year. I think we must have called the not eat over one hundred caverns. Quite a few kind of scold, Israel. Take the jungle Bobby G temp. Those two most a couple of years ago, and I still have links and some. With Manial grassroots Jay and Scotland UK that stole the closest open in much the in the north of France cave job was on his it was healing secrets. Those children and many of the combines used a mixed shale toes where fated some shelter for of the particularly vulnerable children at the but yeah, I mean is still there, but I suppose was a looking for Kujat, not necessarily. But. And the races. But I suppose I'm never so the realis- apply used by the people. Not one what to help and what to do something, which is, which is great. And that's. I support the project would exist, sensually Esmael expensive projector. But we do we need resources at costs money to two picks up each week when we give real full wheel to a new cycle met looks late says, well, that costs money stood by and the frustration. We've actually global we've for the first time even -ployed somebody for a couple of days a week as wheel mechanic, which is which is not surely helped, and I'm gay, he's also supporting volunteers have Glasgow's will Sipa so yeah, you run event. I should say you want an award this last year was that you want to know what the Saco frame, the committee of cycles yet. So yet, sober to stay just ship, yet, which is, which is, which is first of many. Oh, yeah. I think it's nice to have. It's nice to get those. Mosul for the people who support that a lot of us have, and some very, very committed and dedicated volunteers was able to give up a low of in affects and a fun vision for his as well. And just Hove angel a whole region. So what's next for bikes horrific? Geez. Can you give any? Yeah. And site to your next plans. That's plans yet secrets, I suppose what's, I think Pemberton stage in the development of the? Demand for for cases of the day, as I mentioned, always always operating lusting. Always forty fifty sixty people waiting for eight we trained get H two people as quickly as we can. But some players may take a one to see one sister painting and quickly get the needed quickly. We can get reform repealed and on the road. She said to someone apply as a form, as it online or so we have a, a website, www bikes jeez..

"Yeah. Hello and welcome to the refugee voices. Scotland podcast my name is Ken, Gordon. This is our first birthday episode. We are one year old in this episode. We interview Selena from refugee, the subject of our very first podcast to find out what's happened since we last spoke a year ago. He will not be surprised to find out. There's a lot before that as it's breathy. We have a special treatment of you. But the person that more or less came up with the idea for these casts. Jennifer, gordon. I interviewed a Wailer go. And she explains why we started doing the broadcasts and also bits about the work that she does for a grunt provider, based in London. The quality is variable, but it's a long way to London on the internet. Here's Jennifer refugee. Voices. It's refugee voices. Scotland's both the on the lane. I have Jennifer Goten Jennifer go all the way from London. Jennifer, why did we stopped refugee voices Scotland that well, so casting our minds back to this time last year both of us were feeling really first-rate said with the narratives impediments in national media by refugees in particular ones that had arrived in the UK, where integrates in for the papers, would have you believe where I remember this particular story around refugees who were living on Rossi ever leave of really, really annoyed us? And we both felt that we had to do something and kind of thought about what skills we go busted around a couple of ideas than occurred me you are appalled caster. And you have all the gear on your experience in it on. Hey, why don't we use poke casting? As a method of allowing the real stories to get there in a sense of, of amplifying, the voices of people doing amazing work in Scotland's for refugees to tell their own story in their own words being skewed. We thought pay that might be might just work. So I very over excited with myspace. The behalf had already ball. The main goal as g mail address goes to Eric with I was so excited about the idea on here that's where he'll start really remember got bit because I was doing something was in, it'll I went into a show in K motion. But the time you've got the Twitter address on geologist lined up. So. So it was very much. Born of the biased ridiculous news. But news on wanting to do something about it. Absolutely feeling feeling pissed off. I like to say on a pole. And feeling like what can we do with our skill sets and knowledge and experience in networks? What can we what can we do in a meaningful way? And we just thought you know, we're not doing the worker cells. We can amplify the voices of the people that are doing it, and that suicide today. So Jennifer, what's your favorite episode from the last year, and I think my favorite one so fire monthly the one that was by faith United and helped him effigies elevate the kind of churches Scotland project with the coordination piece on refugees, and that is that, like as much as it was an organized by the church Scotland, which is also of the Christian faith. It was multi-faith project. It just felt like a really strong welcoming initiative from the church. Scotland. I really liked the idea episode. Currently is a Corrine through a little Oley of been quite something. In terms of realization also. What people say, but Amy Corinne or throw to spend time with her was quite joyous, despite everything often are positively enter her positive, focus was very inspiring. Everyone of these things being really inspiring. Let's face it, every podcast veiled new information on the humanity of the situation finding these, these parts of humanity that are going to be a, you know, this country in the future, as while it's seeing refugees, not as a refugee in that box, seeing them as a human being. He has had to leave their home and often their family and their livelihood for many different reasons, but they are on their humans with feelings thoughts and opinions and experiences. And they're no less valid than anyone in this country's just 'cause they're not from year. And I think I am quite a believer in hearing that kind of voice of someone who's left experience of something really. Being able to perhaps change the opinion or really provoke something with people that reading an article in paper, that journalists has written about someone else counts. I think there is something very powerful about hearing someone story spoken possible by by themselves, and that, I think that was another key thing when we were setting up, this was, perhaps, someone who has a very negative were refugees, if you sat them dine with the Cup of tea, and that person to speak to someone who had fled Syria or fled the or somewhere in the world and talk with their experience. I've really challenged that Paris in who had the purview of refugees to come out of that have changed their minds that way, because it's very powerful that human to human storytelling. Another thing that really pitched us to, to do this, this podcast is while doing it for you so experience of working with refugees? Yeah, I bet yet back in February at t Gonda to visit project that we fund throughout maker, the I worked for in London. The grants is to organization called give directly who are brilliant, as you might guess, the name their work all around, giving money directly to people living in poverty. So the project has been singing Uganda was in a refugee camp large refugee camp there, which majority refugees there from the Democrats Republic of Congo. But the also have a number of Rwandan refugees have been living there for over twenty years in Uganda. The have some of the most progressive refugee policies in the world. They have basic rights, such as education land, the right to leave the settlements and the right to become a citizen, which is bad. The number of countries. But that's by no means saying that refugees have easy in Uganda all so the project yet we revisiting was giving cash transfers by mobile money to people living in the refugee settlement with no strings attached. They can spend the money on whatever they want the premise of the pilot was to test whether these kind of cash transfers are ineffective way of supporting refugees as opposed to in kind services such as a package or clothing packages etcetera. So really shifting the power balance to giving these people and families cash that they can then budget on spends accordingly according to their needs really fascinating. Really interesting on really again. Hit home. I mentioned earlier round the humanity aspects of these people. There may be assumptions that giving people money you just giving the. They're going to spend on. However, these people they had a life and their form a country where they had jobs. They had family bills to pay on. They had to budget, people know how to manage their needs. And when you give them the cash to do that, that's incredibly empowering that they can say, here's what I need. Not what I'm being given by this agency, this agency has inches e it's by will I can do for my family. It was very inspiring, incredibly powerful on spots of ideas really energizing, visit and great to see project is really disruptive and innovative way of helping refugees in these countries. So, yes, must my limited experience of working refugees, but really inspiring visit on really when I came back made me want to even more unlearn even more by the different challenges, the refugees face around the world's June for could really interesting project other any. Early learning points are interesting fights coming into. Yes. I think it's, it's really interesting as a pilot. So the idea is that next at be scaling up to prove that it is a valid way of supporting as people in hoping that it can perhaps be taken on by some of the large agencies that were presented. But certainly when I was there really positive comes to a number of one on one into us with refugees who had received the cash transfers they have spent on school fees that they've been able to pay, which is excellent a number of medical bills debts that they owed other people when they've had to borrow to pay for medical bills or still 'this never place. There was a lot of meeting the basic immediate needs stockpiling of grain and other foods is great to see the number of livelihoods projects that people were were gauging annual number had boats motorcycles, so that they could be registered Buddha Buddha drivers, which is a form of light motorbike taxi take. Can you gotta so that they had to share light to buy the bike in the first place using the cash transfer? But then the gets making income on its Swiss itself things that he just didn't have the capsule to up to two out there in the first instance to then be able to reap the rewards that, that this passionately Oester for them on the brilliant thing is a few people felt to actually saving the first time they've, you know, in ten years relied of started pitching, some money site. When I get the money back for my livelihood projects for emergencies for a rainy day, you know, she's really brilliant us, I think it was also a appoint around that the slightly, you know, the secondary comes I guess, or in the Senate, less expects his outcomes of cash transfers that we hired by for example, there was a couple. Hey, used the money to fix a wrist make appropriate Reuss prior to that they had some kind of slats let low of rain when it rains, it was the rainy season while we were there. He said that the thing that's really changed is their relationship as parents that they're not arguing all the time. There's so much more family harmony as a result of being able to fix the race on. I think that really powerful linked to the kind of stuff we certainly here in the UK eleborate, toxic stress of living in poverty, just a tool that can take on people in many different forms. Another interesting point, I was quite interested in when they were given the option of whether the male or the female, head of Heissel manage the budget. The women were always taking the budget that men want the responsibility, one mount even. Oh, gosh. I would not I wouldn't spend as well as she went. So I'm happy for her to be managing all our money, which was was great. And really interesting. So on the women said it made them elected had more of a place in, in the high school while they were not for husband wants money. He had to ask her. I think it really that, that was also on the unintended outcome that I thought was fascinating. From a sociological point of view fantastic project fantastic insights at this early stage. Yeah, great. Yeah. Well fuck you so much for explaining the thinking behind the origins of refugee voices. Scotland also telling his about that fantastic project. You're very welcome. Refugee.

"The. Hello and welcome to the refugee voices. Scotland podcast. My name is Ken, Gordon. This episode features Kieran Taylor talking about the forgotten history of Belgian refugees in Glasgow during the great war, a story that has many contemporary parallels. Here's Cuban refugee. Voices. Killing Taylor in your first year. PHD student at the university of Stirling and you're looking into the history of Belgian refugees in Glasgow during the war, what drew you to that subject. Well, I had about current teacher saw talking the first World War, and Scotland Oviously big issue as a history teacher. But definitely I had working species with refugees and science because with the squad shift veto, as tier and within you working as a teacher in issues to do with international education. Google says Vadim portent and saw this project when our plight for to be part of this project to the because weekday did macho definitely experiences the iheart towards an academic APD. Okay. Tell me about your project where my foot as it looks. The history of building Fiji's were being Glasgow, and we're not see this cannot often people are quite surprised and he built jeez. This is something that's because it's really a forgoing as head, not related to the first World War. Two hundred fifty billion refugees came Tippin. Tune the first World War, and the state's nineteen fourteen to nineteen nineteen nineteen and nineteen nineteen sadly most of them were deported by Belgian or repack cheated, but billion, but we can talk about an and a second in twenty thousand diligent effigies came to classical and boys, twenty thousand refugees came who were Adnan care of 'cause corporation, which was caused what city council about team and Glasgow corporation to take the responsibility for these refugees. Because Glasgow subtly was one of the few places where refugees could go because of the war restrictions that team anyone who is foreign anyone who wasn't a nationalist Betsy. Citizen couldn't go to the lakes of Dundee Aberdeen aver because these places, of course, to and there a fear of, you know, having too many foreigners near the coast, and if there was an invasion, even Bill Jim an ally say that, there would be some sort of help. So because they. Who came, and who are dispersed laws will have to stay there. And so there was a special policy. Almost today. Yep. Yep. Absolutely. Because, as you can imagine just like the wall of refugees arriving in coastal areas. Kate folks, we're being stationed in London. However, speaking problem, attics Amboise, the government, and the organization responsible for looking after the war refugees committee, decided to spare refugees to Kane Amedure, Auburn centers Manchester, Birmingham, classical London. We stay in also to Ireland you said and Glasgow twenty in gos-. You said twenty thousand. Yeah. Tweeted in Glasgow so twit so twenty in Glasgow. And where did they go with a good question is will they were spread across the city and some of them that could pair three that further we? In some refugees, being in so kudos coast to the that the, the spate and not being allowed to add to some extent, never some refugees need again. They were really supposed to be there. So we are Cain dispersed. I wrote in the city, however won't happen. Moi's Gaza corporation had a very good system of infrastructure. Not they're very organized city council for the period. So the hard very detailed moves on vegan, hosing, so many refugees were stationed and the can hosing and shared often associate glance coping city Tatum bit impoverished on refugees were late the joy, citizens, staying and whole families and rooms things. However, caused the corporation also annexed and took over some of the parks and institutions are in the city. So, for instance, rookie Glen park was used to Jose Fiji's called over the state ho several difficulties. And also the religious organizations churches to a number of refugees in the institutions, particularly the Catholic church Ruthie refugees received in those days received a new creation and nationally nineteen fourteen what we see as because of the relationship of the refugees Bilden, refugees, arriving, and because the relationship of that to the war, and this is one of the principal reasons but goes to war, the invasion of Belton by Germany was seen as a great humanitarian act. And what we see is an overwhelming support for refugees, particularly in the newspapers. And in this great Jaren that Barbara's actions of the of the gentleman will empire and things a lot and to Belgium, and courageous Bejamin, those really a portrayal Belgian refugees as I can't deserving pays entry is really been treated badly buying Germany. A not is the sum of technical of the reception receive so those babies of good discussions in play many sources of Belgian effigies arriving in God's go at central station. Fromm on, you know, people Wayne in streets, clapping tying things. These release something that we saw refugees received Jeremy nationally. However, over the course of the war, the changes, sadly, and what we see as by nineteen fifteen Beijing, Fiji's are seen as a of a drain on society on account of the fact that, you know, many people are dying in the water that's point many people dying in the water. That's point conscriptions about to be introduced and because of Fiji's are seen as Wyant the fighting why our soldiers over, seas fate, a my aunt, these buildings that we're looking after going over as Bill when spatial inconsideration for some, too. Hundred fifty thousand billion fees. And so this is how the, the narrative rookie changes by nineteen sixty what we see, as the government because of this public pronouncements against building, if because of a growing steady towards the governor actually bonds, any media reporting of negative portrayals refugees by nineteen eighteen when Bilgin effigies the war's over Bilden refugees are very swiftly patchy, too, which as a country, as you can imagine, which has been ravaged by four years of war, coincident, bombardment minute. Setis had been ravaged actually, some photographs, liter flat, and the refugees are shut, but continues in ruins unnecess-, because of fears that they'll be LeBron race between Bilden refugees, and the British public was the perceived need for the refugees as for labor more for employment because again there must have been huge, huge needs in. Partitioned straight loud, telling absolutely the gate war. We associated with mask inscription of made and that was vide- Coleman. We see whole industry tones of coop rage eerie just examples Glasgow. You many walking main are saying overseas to Fe four and so who's gonna fill the jobs. And we associate with women the women's struggle for suffrage as and this as part of the narrative, have Bilgin refugees, but also quite sort of expandable, workforce, thirty percent, reduction and jobs and temperatures the weapons and all the other things at times, the planes, sich Belgian refugees were to some extent drafted than to start building and pervading for the industrial coda me in the saints. So Belgians aren't expand the war
