A great little video of an occupation of Glebe house in Crumlin last Saturday. It went up on Facebook as a series of ‘live’ posts, but they’ve been strung together here.
A great little video of an occupation of Glebe house in Crumlin last Saturday. It went up on Facebook as a series of ‘live’ posts, but they’ve been strung together here – you might be interested. And don’f forget – 12.30, this Wed, Oct 3rd outside Dáil #Raiseth Roo
Housing is a human right – a point made by a UN spokesperson on housing Leilani Farha, as well as by People Before Profit. Against that background, Brid told a harrowing story of homelessness in the Dáil today.
I was on the late debate on RTE radio on Tues, with John Paul Phelan FG, James Lawless FF and Joan Burton, Labour, for my sins. The audio clip below is about the housing crisis- the great disgrace of all the above parties. You might be interested to listen.
8 deaths on the streets since August. We are shamed by the plight of the homeless, and the Minister still refuses to CALL A HOUSING EMERGENCY that could unleash measures to tackle it. No delay in bailing out banks, or cutting workers pay to do so. This brief clip cuts our some of the waffle..but the snow is on the way!
This short audio clip is in reference to the recent denegration of homeless people and those voluntary groups who try to help them, by the State agency involved in homelessness
This brief video 16.11.17 deals with homeless in light of recent government statements on the issue
Bríd speaking at a Right to Housing protest outside the Dáil, to highlight the Bill that she and Richard Boyd Barrett will propose.
81 countries round the world have the right to housing written into their consititution. So why shouldn’t we? Richard Boyd Barrett and I introduced a Bill today to get just that. We want a referendum on an amendment to the constitution, guaranteeing the RIGHT TO A HOME. This is our fourth attempt to get a Bill on the housing crisis passed. Before, we wanted (1) anti-eviction legislation,(2) rent controls, (3) NAMA to provide for social housing, not bargains for developers.The government parties shot down these Bills. Lets see if they will shame themselves again, or do the right thing
Bríd and Mick Barry (Solidarity) were on Morning Ireland on RTE radio this morning; here’s brief clips on 3 things: 1 Our housing Bill – we want the RIGHT TO A HOME IN THE CONSITUTION. 2 On the promised Referendum we say REPEAL NOT REPLACE. 3 On the issue of cannabis oil for sick people we say MAKE IT MEDICINE.
