The Irish Republican Socialist Party and Republican Socialist Youth Movement took part in the Belfast “Take back the City” protest against housing shortages and homelessness. The IRSP assert that a home is a basic Human Right and the right to housing should be enshrined in a future progressive Irish constitution within a 32 County Framework.
The IRSP campaigns for the establishment of a national housing commission consisting of representatives of the construction and housing industry along with trade unions. The housing commission’s sole purpose would be to deliver high standard secure social housing for all.
Ciarán Cunningham of the IRSP gives a speech at the Take Back the City event in Belfast City Hall.
