Housing Sit Down

Impromptu housing sit down on O'Connell Street

Following the violent eviction of housing activists from Take Back the City a sit down protest took place on the 22nd Sept. The rally highlighted the housing shortage and the amount of vacant buildings in the city.

A huge crowd came out and shut down the city for approximately 2 hours. The Garda support for the landlord’s heavies and the manner in which the eviction was done is less than we can expect from our guards of the peace.
