offsite link Trump on the Stump Tue May 21, 2024 14:14 | James Alexander
Donald Trump shows he's the master of campaigning as he says all his supporters want to hear, says James Alexander. In the UK many such things are unutterable, and that?s because after 1776 we followed different paths.

Judges are the world?s greatest confidence tricksters, says Dr. David McGrogan. Purporting to apply neutral law, in fact they impose their own politics via tendentious interpretations skewed towards elite biases.

Census reveals 1 in 8 houses empty while thousands homeless

category dublin | housing | other press author Thursday July 28, 2016 23:43author by 1 of Indymedia Report this post to the editors

The 2016 Census has again revealed there is no housing crisis. In fact about 1 in 8 houses were empty, a massive 259,562 dwellings in all.

So why are their hundreds of homeless on the streets and thousands in emergency accommodation. Why are rents soaring, particularly in Dublin, to level that mean most people can no longer afford to rent there? Why have house prices continued to increase far, far beyond the reach of the average worker?
censushousing_whatcrisis.jpg

It seems clear the answer is to be found in homes being left empty while people sleep on the streets. A situation that only favours landlords and property speculators who want to keep available supply low in order to keep rent and house prices high. And all while courts and Garda evict those amongst us who decide to solve their housing problem by occupying some of these vacant properties.

Irish Housing Network stand with homeless residents in protest of the eviction of twenty families from emergency accommodation in Dublin

O’Connell St, July 22nd - amid Ireland’s worst housing crisis in decades, people gather outside Lynam’s hotel to protest the eviction of five homeless families, including ten children. Fifteen of the twenty families granted temporary shelter at the privately ran hotel have already been pushed out by DCC, and now find themselves forced living off the couches of friends and family. The remaining families who do not want to leave, deciding to take a stand against the apathy and cruelty shown to them by the Irish state now find themselves under huge strain and uncertainty as their quality of life hangs in the balance.
