VIDEO: Thousands join march to demand action on homelessness
Thousands of people have taken to the streets of Dublin to demand action on homelessness. With numbers of homeless people at record levels in Ireland, campaigners criticised the Government’s record on the issue. The event organised by the Raise the Roof campaign saw thousands walk through the city centre carrying placards and chanting slogans. Activists made a series of demands, including the construction of more public housing, an end to evictions, more robust rent controls and a right to housing formally inserted into the state’s constitution.
