295. Our Common Humanity: Taking on the far right through community conversations

Please join us for lots of exclusives at patreon.com/tortoiseshack (Note: Recorded June 19th for members)
In this Reboot Republic, Rory talks to Dean Scurry, community activist in Ballymun and co-organiser of the Apollo House occupation, about Dean’s innovative work responding to the rise in anti-refugee protests. Dean went and spoke to asylum seekers and homeless sleeping in tents, and to young men from working class communities involved in the protests. Dean explains how we need to come at this through finding our common humanity, understanding and responding to the scale of abandonment and exclusion of working class communities, the housing crisis, and being honest, about it all, as Dean is in this conversation about his own mental health. You can help by taking some positive action on world refugee day June 20th
