This Morning at 6.30am we were woken from our beds.Private security working for NAMA were breaking into our homes. We live in a flourishing squatted community in Grangegorman.This space which was once disused warehouses filled with rubble, asbestos and broken glass has been turned into an inspiring and beautiful place to be.The place is coved with artwork, and the community garden has begun to blossom.We have a circus space, poetry nights, folk gigs, Art Exhibitions, Fairs and a community Kitchen.

For example, you say "without eviction proceedings" but do they apply to your case? (would it be reasonable for us to think so?)
As I understand it, in many European countries, HOUSING left vacant my be claimed by "squatting". And to get people do ng that out requires eviction proceedings with a court deciding if the property had been abandoned/left vacant long enough, etc.
But I can't off the top of my head think of any place where COMMERCIAL (not residential) property can be claimed this way, certainly not for "commercial" purposes. Interesting thought about whether could be claimed for residential purposes, again I don't offhand know of examples.
Is THIS what is going one? You want a test case? In that case might as well tell us that instead of saying "without eviction proceedings" because they wouldn't need that until/unless the case got decided that far in your favor (that one can even MAKE a squat claim against commercial property). In other words, they couldn't take out EVICTION proceedings until some case had decided this sort of thing WAS a "squat" (as opposed to simple trespass).
OR (please do) if you have a precedent in mind that you are depending upon, tell us about it.
