  • The Pope's Prisoners

    In 1979, to celebrate the momentous occasion of Pope John Paul coming to Ireland, the Irish Department of Justice decided to grant early release to 76 prisoners - a Papal Amnesty. An early release would mean that the prisoners, like everyone else in the country, would have the opportunity to see the Pope; if they wanted to. But then, an official in An Taoiseach’s (Irish Prime Minister) office worried that hundreds of thousands of homes would be empty while their owners were out seeing the Pope. Not only that, most of the Gardaí in the country would be on duty at the various Masses. It was pointed out that this might be too tempting for prisoners on early release. It was decided, however, to go ahead with the Papal amnesty - but only when the Papal visit was over. The Pope’s Prisoners tells the story of the Papal visit for those on the inside waiting to get out, as well as that of a group of prisoners who did get to see him. In 1979, Pope John Paul II came to Ireland for three days from September 29th to October 1st. His was a very busy schedule. On his arrival from Dublin Airport, he took a helicopter to the Phoenix Park where he celebrated Mass for 1.25 million people – the largest gathering in our country’s history. From the Phoenix Park, he flew to Drogheda for another Mass, returning to Dublin that evening and travelling through the city in a motorcade. Along the route, thousands waited for hours to see him. Locals in Sean McDermott Street were particularly hopeful he might stop off in their street. There was bunting, welcome signs and music. Local priest, Fr Paul Lavelle had helped organise a clean-up of the Church and grounds. Sean McDermott Street was, traditionally, a street of tenements - remnants of the Dublin slums. Poverty and crime were very real aspects of life there. But Sean McDermott Street had pride in it’s possible appeal to this new, campaigning, Polish Pope: It was the site of the tomb of Matt Talbot – a former alcoholic turned religious ascetic. Sean McDermott Street had another connection to the Papal Visit - prisoners. In nearby Mountjoy Prison many inmates were from the Sean McDermott Street area. At one point, out of 450 prisoners there, 52 were from Sean McDermott Street. Some of them hoped to benefit for the Government’s Papal Amnesty. Even if it was delayed until the Pope actually took off from Shannon. That delay may have frustrated some devout prisoners but those campaigning for prisoners’ rights were glad there was an amnesty at all: they saw it as an opportunity to draw attention to the conditions in Irish prisons in 1979. The Irish prison population has changed since the time of the Pope’s visit: now the majority are in prison because of drug use or drugs offences. Campaigners and researchers say there has been a shift in attitude to prisoners - back in 1979, they were seen as having a potential value to society. That belief is absent now, they say. And what about the prisoners who were released early? Many went on to start new lives and many of their family members don’t know they were in prison. One former prisoner however, ‘Paddy’, who was released early, does talk about that weekend in September, 1979 He explains how he only heard about his release on the morning the Pope was leaving Ireland. "You weren’t actually told beforehand. ’Go down to reception, get your gear and get out’ – that’s it." ‘Paddy’ had grown up in an orphanage and prison was just one more institution where he lived so, getting out early, didn’t really impress him: "I was out in two weeks time anyway so it didn’t make any difference to me, whether I got out two weeks or four." And as for the reason for the early release, the Pope: "I know it was because of the Pope but I had no interest in him anyway. Like it was no big deal to me that he was over here. It’s just you were glad to get out."

    This hour, we trot across middle America, with a story from a Nashville neighbourhood, and a Missouri payphone that won’t stop ringing. The Great Divide By Meribah Knight for The Promise from Nashville Public Radio (2018) Big Man, a public housing resident from Nashville’s Cayce Homes, walks across the street to meet the wealthy couple who live in the fancy new home on the hill. In many ways, their lives couldn’t be more different, but in breaking the silence between the two sides of the gentrifying neighborhood, a friendship begins to form — only to be dashed in a way no one could have expected. [Note: this is the 4th episode of the series] Putting Columbia’s Pay Phone Mystery to Rest By Emerald O’Brien for KBIA in Columbia Missouri (2016) Payphones went from being a staple of many people’s daily lives to nearly completely antiquated in a matter of decades. This is true in Columbia, too – with only a couple dozen phones still standing. But KBIA's Emerald O'Brien looked into why one downtown payphone has an unusual amount of activity, but only in the middle of the night. And answering this question led her down an unexpected path. Unsent (2017) By Laura Barton for Short Cuts from Falling Tree Productions and BBC Radio 4 A box full of postcards, stamped and unsent, may seem insignificant, but as Laura Barton explains, those cards can capture a time and place long forgotten.

On this edition of Making Contact we present, The Struggle Inside: The Murder of George Jackson, a program about the modern anti-prison movement. This year marks the 39th anniversary of Black August, first originated in the California prisons to honor fallen Freedom Fighters, George and Jonathan Jackson, Khatari Gaulden, James McClain, and William Christmas. Jonathan Jackson was gunned down outside the Marin County courthouse on August 7, 1970 as he attempted to take hostages in a plan to negotiate the release of his brother, George. This action liberated three imprisoned Black Liberation Fighters: James McClain, William Christmas and Ruchell Magee. Ruchell Magee still imprisoned, and is the sole survivor of the Marin County Rebellion.

    Latin America has a long tradition of regional solidarity and openness to migration. Most countries in the region have responded to Venezuelans fleeing their country's economic and political crisis by keeping borders open and offering Venezuelans various forms of legal residency. The world has much to learn from Latin America in this regard. At the same time, the growing number of Venezuelan refugees has put pressure on this solidarity, exposing tensions between domestic politics, regional alliances and historical values. With no end to the crisis in sight, it is a critical moment to seek a better understanding of these dynamics. Joining the discussion are UNHCR Deputy Representative Chiara Cardoletti and Universidad del Pacífico’s Luisa Feline Freier. It is moderated by Christine Mendonça, CEO & co-founder of Humans on the Move.

When one or both parents are incarcerated the family is also incarcerated and are adversely affected in profound ways that exacerbate existing structural inequalities and struggles. Programs for inmates and families like FamilyWorks and the Storybook Program, encourage rebuilding and maintaining relationships despite being separated by prison. The Osborne’s FamilyWorks program, the first comprehensive parenting program in a men’s state prison founded in 1986. FamilyWorks operates as a counterbalance to the numerous challenges in keeping a family together, such as the high cost of collect calls to inmates, long distances to prisons. The Storybook program in at the State Prison for Men in Concord, New Hampshire is a little different than at other prisons across the country. This is run by the Department of Corrections (DOC) instead of a nonprofit or grassroots organization that can function as a link between the men inside and their communities outside. This non-narrated piece shares some of the experiences and changes that these fathers experience, but also some of the stories and messages they read to their children.
