INTO General Secretary Sheila Nunan will lead the INTO delegation to the Raise the Roof Rally which takes place on Wednesday October 3 from 12:30 – 14:00.
The Irish Congress of Trade Unions has called the lunchtime rally on the housing and homeless crisis, to take place outside Leinster House.
The rally coincides with a cross-party opposition motion to be debated in the Dail on the same day. The motion is supported by Sinn Fein, the Labour Party, the Social Democrats, the Green Party, People Before Profit and Independents4Change. The motion demands radical action on the housing crisis and strongly reflects the key points set out in the Congress Charter for Housing Rights. (pdf)
