An Irish rapper is urging people to "Stand Up" against homelessness ahead of Dublin protest march

"This isn't about left or right, it's respect for life. There's kids sleeping in hotels at night"

Irish rapper Nugget has joined forces with Focus Ireland in an attempt to raise awareness for a protest march taking place on Saturday, 7 April. The protest, organised by the National Homeless and Housing Coalition, will start at the Garden of Remembrance in Dublin at 1 pm.

To coincide with the march, Nugget has released a song which tackles the issue of homelessness with a passionate and frustrated tone and features hard-hitting lines such as: "One in five TDs are landlords, remember this. Why would they bring in legislation when they benefit?"

Speaking about the song, Nugget said: "I feel very strongly about the injustice of the homelessness crisis and was delighted to get involved. I hope this track helps to get people talking and thinking about the crisis and that they will come out and march on 7 April."

"It's also been a dream come true for me, to be doing something so important through music," Nugget added.

More information on the protest is available on the Focus Ireland website.
