Raise the Roof campaign – New Deal for Housing – Protest & Rally Cork 10th June 2023

The Raise the Roof campaign, in association with the ICTU, is holding a protest march and rally in Cork on Saturday 10th June. The campaign is calling for a New Deal for Housing.

The Government must now deliver:

  • A State-led housing programme with a mandate to deliver affordable homes for all
  • A new State body with responsibility for housing delivery
  • Emergency measures to reduce homelessness and shorten time spent in emergency accommodation
  • An end to ‘no fault’ evictions, a freeze on rents and long-term security for renters
  • A legal Right to Housing

The event will assemble at 12:30 on Saturday 10th June at Connolly Hall, Lapps Quay, Cork with speakers and music from Karan Casey, Martin Leahy and Myles Gaffney.

The CWU is supporting the campaign and is requesting members to make an effort to attend the event. For more information, you can contact your Branch Secretary or Fionnuala Ní Bhrógáin at fnib@cwu.ie.
