On Saturday May 18 the trade union-led Raise the Roof campaign will stage a mass rally in Dublin in protest at the ongoing and worsening housing emergency. The rally will assemble at 1p.m. at Parnell Square, Dublin. ASTI members should assemble at the ASTI yellow flags.
The housing emergency affects virtually all sectors of society: workers, families, women, students, pensioners, travellers and many others.
As part of Raise the Roof, the Irish Congress of Trade Unions has put forward clear solutions to this crisis, such as the urgent need to build more public housing and to create a legal right to housing, which already exists in some 80 countries worldwide. You can sign the petition here www.raisetheroof.ie.
