A new alliance comprising the trade union movement, women’s organisations, students and the housing and homeless agencies have come together to demand radical action to address the crisis. A ‘Raise the Roof’ rally in support of a Dáil motion calling for such a programme for the construction of quality affordable public housing, to prevent evictions and to enshrine the right to housing in the Constitution, will be held at Leinster House on Wednesday 3rd October.
