About this event

Stewart Smyth, a researcher, trade unionist and activist, will draw on the history of how the Housing Executive was formed through the civil rights struggle to becoming a recognised international leader in public housing, before being subject to privatisation threats and political indifference. He will argue that all is not lost and post-Covid-19, a revitalised and fully funded Housing Executive is essential to provide decent secure housing and to generate jobs and economic activity.

Organised by the Communist Party of Ireland Labharfaidh Stewart Smyth, taighdeoir, ceardchumannaí agus gníomhaí faoin dóigh ar bunaíodh an Feidhmeannas Tithíochta ó streachailt na gceart sibhialta go dtí a aitheantas mar cheann de na príomheagraíochtaí idirnáisiúnta is fearr i dtithíocht phoiblí, sular cuireadh faoi bhagairt an phríobháidithe é agus sula raibh neamhsuim pholaitiúil ann. Déanfaidh sé an cás nach fíon faoi lár é agus i ndiaidh Covid-19, go mbeidh Feidhmeannas Tithíochta athnuaite agus lánmhaoinithe riachtanach le tithíocht mhaith shábháilte a sholáthar agus le postanna agus gníomhaíocht eacnamaíochta a chruthú.
