Jimi Cullen - Guerrilla Gigs Ep.1 - On The Street - Live From A Ghost Estate


Welcome to the first video in a new series called Guerrilla Gigs, in which I'll be traveling around Ireland to various locations of recent social and political significance to perform songs of protest and solidarity about many local, national and global issues.

In Episode 1 I traveled to a Ghost Housing Estate in Gorey in Co. Wexford to protest against the ongoing housing and homelessness crisis, not just here in Ireland but on an International level too and against the many governments who are allowing it to continue and worsen despite the endless suffering it is inflicting upon people.

Unfinished, abandoned developments such as the one I visited have become common sights in many countries around the world in recent years while homeless figures have hit all time highs. In Ireland alone we now have in excess of 8,000 people living on the streets or in unfit temporary accommodation and the last month alone has seen the death of several of these poor, marginalized human beings. This is completely unacceptable, but sadly, it will continue unless urgent action is taken now.

It is an absolute disgrace that we currently have such huge numbers of homeless people here in Ireland, and across the world, while so many properties are being allowed to lie vacant and fall into disrepair by our shameful governments who have absolutely no empathy for the people they are supposed to protect, yet will happily bend over backwards to accommodate the dodgy developers, crooked bankers, greedy landlords and vulture fund parasites who have inflicted these miseries onto ordinary, decent, people.

This song is called On The Street...
