Crowe calls on public to support Homelessness Rally

16 September, 2005


Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Social and Family Affairs Seán Crowe T.D. has called on the people of Dublin to come out in support of the homeless by attending the Anti-Homelessness rally in Dublin tomorrow. Deputy Crowe said, "It is totally unacceptable that homeless people should be dying on the streets of our cities in the midst of a so-called Celtic tiger economy."

Speaking today he said, "The recent deaths of three people sleeping rough on the streets must not be repeated. It is totally unacceptable that homeless people should be dying on the streets of our cities in the midst of a so-called Celtic tiger economy.

"With winter only beginning there is an urgent need for the Government to address this issue and a big turnout on Saturday will go a long way in focusing them on what needs to be done. The people of Dublin need to send a message to the Government that these deaths are blight on them and their record. It is an unfortunate fact that we cannot depend on them to take action on their own initiative. Therefore I call on all who can to attend Saturday's rally." ENDS
