203. Ukrainian Refugees & the Housing Crisis: We Can Solve Both

In this Reboot Republic podcast I talk to Siobhan O’Donoghue, founder and director of Uplift, about the Ukraine humanitarian crisis, and how we can, and must provide homes -not tents and warehouses -for Ukraine refugees, and provide homes for those homeless in Ireland already. We discuss how through proper leadership and action like during COVID, the Government and Irish State could use the massive number of vacant holiday homes, and wider vacant and derelict property. We could direct private construction to do up that property quickly into homes. It is about the political will. Siobhan outlines what you can do – Uplift have a petition set up – please sign it and share:https://action.uplift.ie/campaigns/empty-homes-open-letter
