Back at the start of October, a licorice all sorts box of academics and activists from all strands gathered for a day school on the housing crisis. Bits and pieces from the day have started appearing online as food for thought.
First up there’s a recording of the proceedings featuring Rory Hearne, Fr Peter McVery and a speaker called Danielle who talks about how she was given the wrong information by Dublin City Council and the huge stresses of living homeless at the moment. Head over to the Housing Emergency and Rights Conference website for the rest of that.
Elsewhere Mick Byrne shares his thoughts on the day at the Provisional University website.
