Aftermath of what seems to have been a violent 7am eviction in Stoneybatter this morning where bailiffs smashed windows with baseball bats. At lunch 20+ Garda, 7 cars & the helicopter were there to prevent reoccupation – in effect once more legitimizing an illegal eviction pic.twitter.com/a4li2CpSqG

Prussia Street, Stoneybatter, Dublin 7.
Actually get so emotional seeing this. Some of the very people worst affected by the housing crisis, who made a vacant property a home and a community space, were violently attacked and their home destroyed by violent heavys and the Gardaí protected and facilitated them to do it! https://t.co/AXsC47zsKQ

There is no legal basis for garda participation in or facilitation of private evictions. https://t.co/iKiOwjQBkR
