Austerity ripped the hearts out of our communities- the Dublin riots: finding a way forward through community
In this Reboot Republic podcast, Rory talks about the impact of the stabbing and the riots in Dublin and the political and media response, to Paula Kearney, community worker in Dublin’s North Inner City, Glen Kearney, youth worker in the inner city, and Dean Scurry, youth worker and activist in Ballymun. We discuss the deprivation and inequalities in the city, along with the impact of austerity on community, attitudes and actions of the Gardai, the rise in racism, and finding ways forward through community engagement and civil society action for investment in the key social issues affecting communities.
