In a statement, the demonstrators said: “Occupy Belfast have taken control of the Bank of Ireland on Royal Avenue in opposition to soaring homelessness, lack of affordable social housing and home repossessions.”
Stating that they hoped for the “building of a housing campaign”, they added: “Banks take our houses so we take their buildings. This is a repossession for the community!”
