VIDEO: 'How many innocent people will die on our streets this winter?' - Margaret Cash makes impassioned speech at housing protest

Thousands of people took to the streets of Dublin today to demand action on the housing crisis.

A large crowd marched to Leinster House where they were greeted by several speakers including Senator Francis Black and singer/song writer Damien Dempsey. 

Chants of ‘raise the roof, not the rent’ rang out through the city as upwards of 10,000 people made their way towards Dail Eireann.

Mother-of-seven Margaret Cash, who made headlines earlier this year when a photo of her children sleeping on chairs in a garda station went viral, made an impassioned speech at the protest.
