Today, An Spréach held a successful information stall outside the GPO on O’Connell Street, where we collected many signatories for a petition calling on the Council to open up the unused and vacant homes around the country.
The response from the passing public was absolutely fantastic, and at the same time, harrowing to hear their own sad stories at dealing with the horrific housing crisis. It’s a desperate situation right across the board.
Afterwards we joined in with our comrades in the anti-water metre protest, which saw upwards to 100000 people from across the country, both young and old, in attendance. An amazing show of strength by the ordinary citizens in this country, the ruling class are quaking in their boots—Keep up the Pressure!
