Listen to Apollo House residents & volunteers speak from inside the building

“This gives me my life back…makes me feel like a person.” Trade Union TV have given a glimpse into Apollo House.

 

News emerged on December 16 that protesters had occupied a vacant, NAMA-owned building.

Since then the ‘Home Sweet Home’ initiative became a movement.

It looked to use the space that has been vacant for six years to house the numerous people sleeping rough on the Capital’s streets, and with support from musicians and artists like Glen Hansard, Jim Sheridan, Damien Dempsey, Hozier and others the nations eyes became fixed on the building.

Today there was a march from the site to the Minister of Finance’s offices, “to deliver a clear message – we want NAMA properties used for social good not just luxury offices.”

Watch Trade Union TV’s glimpse inside the building below.
