Radical Routes begin an all-island speaking tour at the end of this month to people to set up their own co-ops. They are presenting this as a way out of both the precarious rental market and the trap of long-term mortgage debt.

The tour will draw on their experience where the Radical Routes network has over 35 member co-ops. They say that "While the legal and financial structures relevant to setting up a co-op are different in the UK and Ireland, the experience learned from establishing these projects in the UK is valuable to anyone in Ireland considering setting up a co-operative and taking control of their own housing situation."

The idea that we can tackle Ireland’s increasing homeless crisis by packing people into tightly fitted shipping containers is unfathomable, ill-conceived and an insult to injury to the countless number of homeless people in need of decent, adequate housing. read full story / add a comment

Emergency situation in Calais!

All squats and camps will be evicted in the next few days!

In the course of the next few days, three camps will be destroyed by the police. More than 600 people live in these camps, which were won through constant migrant struggle after a long series of evictions. No solution has been proposed for the evicted migrants. Moreover, a social center and two further squats are up for eviction starting on May 30th. All told, more than 800 people will be put on to the street. read full story / add a comment

Dun Laoghaire Rathdown (DLR) is facing a housing crisis. As international financial vulture funds descend on Dublin and are forcing up the property prices again as they seek to get a return on their billions because bank interest rates are so low, this has resulted in rents rising where they are now highest in the country. The result has been that now thousands of families are unable to afford the rents as they are being forced up by landlords. In DLR there are over 4,000 families on the housing waiting list. The national figure is 90,000.

An emergency protest for housing is taking place outside outside the Town Hall while the council have a housing meeting. read full story / add a comment

There is a new squat in Dublin up in Grangegorman where all the DITs will be moving in the next few years. It has been setup by a group of political squatters. They now face eviction from the row of empty, unused, rotting houses in Lower Grangegorman and they are asking people to come and help resist.
