Six People Arrested During Housing Protest


Share this article


Six people have been arrested at the site of a protest by housing activists on North Frederick Street.

A number of people occupying a house were evicted this evening under an order from the High Court.

Images shared on social media showed a number of masked gardaí gathered in front of the property during this evening's eviction.

Gardaí say a large crowd of demonstrators gathered during the eviction.

Six people were arrested for breaches of the peace under the Public Order Act.

Following the eviction, protesters have been gathering outside Store Street Garda Station tonight 'in solidarity' with the six arrested people.

The property on North Frederick Street was taken over by a group of protesters last month.

It followed a 10-day occupation of a building at Summerhill Parade a short distance away – which ended after the High Court ordered protesters to leave.

Those involved in the demonstrations have argued that houses should not be allowed sit vacant during the housing crisis.
