Comrades, I am writing on behalf of the outreach team of the Home Sweet Home group which has occupied an empty office block in the centre of Dublin, Apollo House, just before Christmas (Dec 16) to house homeless people who would otherwise be sleeping on the streets over the holidays period (and risking death from hypothermia in this weather).

We were in court before Christmas and the High Court has ordered our eviction on January11th. Currently we have 40 residents (homeless people) who have their home here, and an army of volunteers providing support (medical, psychological, social, addiction support, etc), building maintenance, cooking, security, legal, media, admin and outreach support.

We are mobilising groups across Ireland in support of our cause, but also we would like to reach out to international groups who are in sympathy with using direct action and occupations to fight homelessness and the housing crisis created by the failed model of a market-driven strategy of housing for profit not need.

We invite all interested groups to read the informations on our pages about our aims and principles and achievements.

For groups that are interested in getting in touch with us either for general contact, or for possible solidarity actions before or on the 11th January, please use our contact form to get in contact with us.
