The Slaughter INSP 17/03/2014

Mass murder is alive and well in China. That’s the stark conclusion US author Ethan Gutmann came to after an investigation into the Chinese Communist Party’s alleged secret program to exterminate political dissidents while profiting from the sale of their organs – in many cases to Western recipients. Based on interviews with top-ranking police officials and Chinese doctors who claim to have killed Falun Gong prisoners on operating tables, veteran China analyst Gutmann has written an important book due to be released shortly. INSP interviewed Gutmann during his recent visit to Scotland.

Illegal: the magazine sold by addicts for drugs INSP 27/01/2014

For many drug addicts, the only way to feed their addiction is by turning to crime or prostitution. However, a new magazine founded by social entrepreneurs in Denmark is aiming to change the lives of drug addicts and also the public’s attitude towards them.

The Marikana massacre - a fight for justice INSP 20/01/2014

On 16 August 2012, South Africa witnessed the single most lethal use of force since the end of the apartheid era when South African police fired upon striking miners at a platinum mine in Marikana. 34 miners were killed that day by police who targeted protesters with machine-guns. An investigation that followed uncovered falsified police reports and evidence there was collusion between the police and British mining company Lonmin, who owned the mine. Some 18 months later, victims’ families – many of whom now live in destitution without any source of income – are still fighting for justice. Jim Nichol, a prominent miscarriage of justice lawyer from the UK, is in South Africa trying to get compensation for the bereaved. He told INSP about the horrendous poverty left in the wake of the massacre.

INSP turns 20 INSP 06/01/2014

With little evidence of financial recovery at street-level and demand for food banks across the world growing at an alarming rate, the number of people falling into destitution and homelessness continues to rise. For many people now living in poverty or sleeping on the streets, becoming the vendor of a street paper can save their lives. Working hard and earning their way out of poverty, street paper vendors around the world are changing public perceptions of homelessness and championing the vital importance of the street paper movement. The International Network of Street Papers, which supports 122 street papers and 28,000 vendors around the world, celebrates its 20th year in 2014.

In 2005 he became CEO of The Big Issue Australia, a successful and much-loved street paper based in Melbourne which is self-sufficient and independent.

Persson talks to INSP about the importance of approaching charity with a business mind in order to reduce the costs that homelessness has on society.

GalGael: Viking longboats fight unemployment INSP 09/12/2013

Viking longboats are helping to tackle mental illness and unemployment in a unique project in Glasgow, UK. Amongst the wood shavings and machinery noise of the GalGael Trust boat-building workshop, long-term unemployed people are learning new skills to get them back into the work-force while building communications skills and alleviating the depression that often comes with unemployment. The prestigious workshop – where the 2014 Commonwealth Games baton was carved – trains its participants to build traditional boats and skiffs, as well as to sail them.
