National Homeless and Housing Coalition Demo - Sat 8th March @ 2pm
Friday March 08, 2019 23:27 by nh - National Homeless and Housing Coalition
Join the protest this Saturday at 2pm in Dublin. We can end the housing crisis - let's get feet on the street.
Join us tomorrow #March9th at 3 locations for the Dublin Housing & Homeless Demonstrations.
Meeting Points[[/bold]]: The Housing Agency, 53 Mount Street Upper, D2
The GPO/Spire, Dublin 1
City Hall, Dame Street, Dublin 2
Following on from the huge success of the 3 demonstrations that took place in 2018 the National Homeless and Housing Coalition, of which ICHH are a proud member, have called a Dublin Demonstration on Saturday March 9th at 2pm.
MEET AT ONE OF THE THREE ASSEMBLY POINTS AT 2PM.
THE VARIOUS FEEDER MARCHES WILL THEN MARCH TO A MYSTERY DESTINATION IN THE CITY CENTRE.
The coalition is supported by community groups, charities, NGO’s, student unions, political parties, trade unions, musicians and artists and we need to build on the momentum of last year that saw 18,000 people take to the streets in December. We need to show the government that we will no longer accept their lack of will to build public housing on public lands and their continued over reliance on the private sector to address the homeless and housing emergency.
Rebuild Ireland has been an unmitigated disaster yet the cross party motion that was passed in the Dail in October that called for practical actions that would end the emergency, including making it illegal to evict someone into homelessness, were ignored by the government even though it was supported by all parties except Fine Gael. We are demanding action on the motion.
We also learned that 15 Dublin hotels received over €1m each in 2018 for accommodating homeless families which further illustrates the reliance on the private sector. These families need public housing built on public lands, they need proper homes. Last year there were 842 cases of children being discharged from the Temple Street Emergency Department back into homeless emergency accommodation. The majority of these cases were a direct result of the fact that these children are living in completely unsuitable and cramped emergency accommodation.
These children need you to join us as we take to the streets on March 9th to demand #HomesForAll.”
