Homeless Lobby/Picket of Dublin City Council Meeeting - Monday OCT 3

"We are calling on Dublin City Council in an emergency motion on October 3rd

‘That this City Council calls on the Government to refrain from selling the former UCD veterinary College, Dublin 4 and instead allocate it to Dublin City Council with a view to allievating the housing crisis in the city’.

This is a very simple proposal in finding a solution to the housing crisis and homeless situation in Dublin. Homeless People have been invited by some councillors to attend the meeting. We intend to represent visibly and loudly to those councillors who will be voting on the motion that we want their support.

Notice in this clip that some scathing things are said about authorities and charities alike, but no government bullying could ensue because; we didn't ask 'who are you?' knowing that we're all equal in our humanity.
