I had a response from 5 Cllrs, 3 of them @cllrmobrien @CiaranCuffe @PerryCieran all raised a query with DCC. Which I appreciate. I also had a response from @eilistweets and @MayorMontague . #RaiseTheRoof #LE19
In a written response from the Office of The Chief Executive of @DubCityCouncil it advised that DCC monitor my account and other social media for reports of substandard accommodation in DCC area and take action if necessary. #RaiseTheRoof
The response stated DCC don't discuss actions with third parties or anonymous referrals. However, it's great they can depend on my work. However, I think it would be more beneficial if the monitored the platforms that actually advertise property in the first place. #RaiseTheRoof

GardaĆ­ shut down the street in front of government buildings to block #RaiseTheRoof demonstrators today, as a motion calling for rent regulation, investment in public housing and a referendum on the right to a home was debated. Thousands packed the streets nearby instead.
Thousands turn out for the #RaiseTheRoof rally, from Dublin's Lord Mayor to people in Direct Provision, demanding solutions to Ireland's housing crisis. Many spoke of facing homelessness themselves, or said they were there because they knew a family affected. #HousingCrisis
Maya (22) came from Galway for #RaiseTheRoof with a family friend, who took her in after being told her baby would be put in care if she couldn't get housing. Maya said she is homeless nearly 2 years now and had to quit college, living in hostels or on couches with her daughter.

1/3What do you think? Well a lot of people think that it will be expensive. And its true that there will be a need for capital spend & borrowing but in the long term its much more cost effective
2/3See here the spend of EU countries as a % of GDP on housing on amenities.
3/3 See here the spend of EU countries as a % of GDP on Social Protection for Housing

Looks pretty good to me but to achieve these shifts in policy we need to #RaiseTheRoof
