Hoarding vacant property in a city with a property crisis (and elsewhere) at the detriment of society is just wrong. I'm all for taxing the crap out of vacant/derelict property/sites after a certain amount of time passed.

thats fair enough and you are entitled to your opinion, but thats a long way from illegally occupying.

The States ultimate recourse is force and nothing else to consolidate it's authority. That can be revoked by an over-powering force. Originating from one or both Internal or external sources.

So what's your point in the wider context?

Keep in mind that constitutional amendments have occurred to make law argued and won on such counter points to yours, if I am understanding your points correctly.

agreed. Muster up wide scale support for taxing the hell out of the property owners.

It is one thing illegally occupying as a peaceful protest but once an eviction notice has been served, the protesters are defying a court order.

I understand all the frustration re the lack of housing, but wide scale support of defying the courts just leads to anarchy, much to the detriment of society.

From what I've heard they've already mapped out where the other vacant properties are across the city. The optics from last night were terrible for the state and something the movement will probably highlight all day long. They have the awareness now. I'd obviously prefer if they directed their protests towards policy makers instead but I'm guessing this is one of the first of many occupations they will make.

C'mon that's really a strawman in reply to a clarification - let's not everyone, lose the run of ourselves. It's not as if someone has argued we use feather dusters to tickle them out of their state of occupational ire or some such nonsense to move them. You're looking at what appears to be a political protest, maybe a small movement, that considering the topic could become a big movement someday. It's always to play for. What's so hard to understand?

Further is it so hard to fantom in the context?

I guess some people are still easily bemused and can't imagine why the issue of property/housing and having somewhere stable to live in Ireland would be such a potentially contentious issues.

Perhaps an article like this helps to clarify the motivations and the political nature the people involved.

Quote:
...Activists then turned their attention to 34 Frederick St, which has no connection to the Summerhill properties.

Organisers of the protests say they want: "To continue to highlight the causes of this housing crisis, one of which is land hoarding and speculation by private owners."

A spokesperson for the network said "public representatives aren't beyond targeting" when asked about why they are now occupying the house in Belvedere Court.

Such sentiments are in line with the many years of threads expressing same or similar frustrations over the life time of this forum.

If they are "idiots" then we're all "idiots" fighting over the how and what but never truly addressing the why, means we all remain idiots don't ya think?



I was being facetious, but really what did the protesters expect was going to happen?

The owning family are probably not doing/involved anything sinister. From what I gather, the building needs total renovation, which is what I believe they plan to do, but there is no pressure on them to speed this up as there is no financial penalty for not doing so and the property is increasing in value.

Many have said that a site value tax, or an extra penalty on property tax for derelict properties will sort much of the issue of land/property hoarding. Politicians know there are no votes in doing this, so unlikely to happen soon.

Ok a reasonable point but you have the same courts playing political football with housing repossessions for a decade causing a form of let's call it, housing anarchy for tens of thousands of people (maybe hundreds of thousands) all the while continual government policy compounds matters in one direction i.e. "worse" and that has resulted in verifiable deaths in the extreme (for e.g. Green Party legislation removing bedits) versus what? Keeping up appearances???.

We need to really define this flavour of anarchy you (rhetorical) are not willing to countenance in more real terms. Please.
