Thousands protest in Dublin housing rally

Last week, held on the fourth anniversary of the death of Johnathan Corrie, an estimated 10,000 people took part in a protest organised by the National Housing and Homeless Coalition, represented by about fifty different groups of homeless activists and unions.

The protest began at the Garden of Remembrance on Frederick Street, and followed a path to Dame Street, where spokespeople such as Tina McVeigh of People Before Profit called for Government action to introduce constitutional rights to housing and other measures to combat homelessness throughout the city.
