Update on Burglaries
After a huge spike in home burglaries in the Coolock area, the local community have decided enough is enough and began to organise to begin tackling the issue. A protest by the community was recently held at Santry Garda Station regarding the poor Garda response burglaries in the area. Protesting residents had a meeting with the Garda afterwards. Other residents have begun a local neighbourhood watch scheme. A full update will be given at the meeting by Ciaran.
The water tax installation point is fast approaching for the people of Dublin Northeast. The only successful way to defeat this outrageous charge is to mobilise locally, and to have a united community front ready to resist the water tax. éirígí have held a successful meeting on the topic, in September attended by near 80 residents, and are now looking at taking the next steps of growing a strong community alliance, intent on smashing the water tax.
éirígí Dublin Northeast representative Ciaran Heaphey, commenting on the upcoming meeting said: “It is a time for residents to take a stand against the crippling policies being pushed upon on them by the government in Leinster House, who continue to attack the most vulnerable in society. It also gives the local community a chance to talk about local issues of concern to them. Hope to see you on 27th November.''
