Macdara Doyle, Irish Congress of Trade Unions, in support of a rally on the housing and homeless situation.An appeal by
As you may be aware, the Executive Council of Congress has called a lunchtime rally on the housing and homeless crisis, to take place outside Leinster on Wednesday October 3 @ 12.30-2pm.
The rally is also being supported by the National Housing & Homeless Coalition, the National Women’s Council of Ireland, the Union of Students in Ireland and a wide range of housing agencies and advocates, under the umbrella of the Raise the Roof initiative.
The rally coincides with a cross-party opposition motion that is to be debated in the Dail on the same day. The motion is supported by Sinn Fein, the Labour Party, the Social Democrats, the Green Party, People Before Profit and Independents4Change. The motion demands radical action on the housing crisis and strongly reflects the key points set out in the Congress Charter for Housing Rights.
It would be greatly appreciated if you could circulate and share the attached leaflet amongst colleagues and friends and encourage as many people as possible to attend on Wednesday, October 3 @ 12.30-2pm.
