There was a successful eviction stoppage in Laois yesterday.
Around 30 citizens, some non-aligned, some linked with the ULA, Defend Our Homes League, Freedom from All Debt and the Anti Eviction Task Force peacefully faced down the deputy sheriff, the bank's representative and the Gardai, preveting them from executing the eviction order.
Thanks. Look up the Anti Eviction Task Force on Facebook. You can also check out the websites for the Defend Our Homes League, Freedom From All Debt etc. All are encouraged to set up Anti Eviction Task Forces in their local communities.
House and land. I was there, but not fully aware of the circumstances. As far as I know there was an outstanding debt amounting to a fraction of the value of the land. Hopefully this will set a precedent. There will be a lot of attempted evictions in the coming year, and with people being put out on the streets we need to organize to protect one another.
