269. Where next for Ireland for All? A new movement for a new Ireland

>Please join us at patreon.com/tortoiseshack In this Reboot Republic, Rory chats to some of the lead organisers (Dean Scurry, Clare O Connor, and Darragh Adelaide) of the incredible Ireland for All gathering on February 18th which saw tens of thousands people march through Dublin in the largest positive mobilisation in Ireland since the Water Charges in 2015. We talk about the historic importance of the gathering, how it was a moment of celebration, a giant act of solidarity and love, and an assertion for an inclusive welcoming Ireland for refugees, asylum seekers, Travellers, and the diverse population of Ireland. We also discuss how it was also a moment of challenge to the policies of Governments and failures in housing, health, inequality, and poverty that are leaving communities marginalised. We discuss the key role of local ‘For All’ groups and activists in organising the event, and we discuss how Ireland For All can continue to grow as a new movement for a new Ireland, a vision and pathway for conversations, community action, celebrations and assertions of an Ireland for All based on addressing the inequalities in society.
