Basin Street flats residents occupy Dublin Corporation offices

From éirígi:

Residents of Basin Street Flats and supporters have begun an occupation of Dublin City Council offices to demand that the council immediately address a range of maintenance and management issues in the south inner city flats complex. The recent flooding of a number of homes from leaking rooftop water tanks was just the latest in a long line of problems that residents have been forced to endure over recent years.

Despite the massive housing crisis gripping Dublin City, there have been continuous rolling cutbacks to housing maintenance staff levels for a number of years, a situation that neither the state nor the council are willing to reverse. With all others avenues exhausted, the residents are now fully justified in stepping up their campaign. Our representative for Dublin South Central, Damien Farrell, and other éirígi activists are participating in the protest as a show of solidarity with the residents of the Basin Street Flats.
