Practical Squatting Nights in Seomra Spraoi!

Seomra Spraoi / Thursday 20th November (3rd Thursday of every Month) / 6pm–8pm

Are you interested in squatting in Dublin? Do you want to meet and network with other squatters? Are you looking for other people to squat with? Do you have questions about the law, or other practical aspects of squatting? Do you need help finding an empty building? Then you should come to Practical Squatting Nights in Seomra Spraoi this Thursday!

Background

Over the last three or four years, a squatting community in Dublin has grown and established itself to a point where it now has several long-term “established” squats, a good network of support, and a wealth of knowledge and experience of the practical aspects of squatting. It recently put on the 2014 Dublin International Squatters Convergence, a four-day event which an estimated 100+ squatters from abroad attended. But up until now, there have been few avenues for people who want to get involved in squatting who don’t already have connections to the community.

To tackle this problem, many squatting communities in other cities run regular practical squatting nights for newcomers to squatting. These events offer a venue for new squatters to meet other squatters, potential squatmates and pick up advice and practical help.

Practical Squatting Nights in Seomra Spraoi hopes to address this problem by bringing practical squatting nights to the squatting community in Dublin! There will be a practical squatting night in Seomra Spraoi on the third Thursday of every month, from 6pm–8pm. The first one is this Thursday, the 20th November!
