Self organising & the city -Squatting panel


“This panel looked at the challenges and possibilities of popular self-organisation to reclaim our lives, our homes and our cities. Jenny and Zoe looked at recent occupations in Dublin, including the Grangegorman Squat in Smithfield where resistance to eviction is ongoing. Jenny said “We see squatting not just as housing ourselves as individuals, but as a worldwide struggle against neoliberalism. Capitalism basically amounts to the accumulation of private property and squatting acts as one of the most direct challenges to this. During the housing crises, its now more important than ever. We want this movement to grow.”
