Strokestown

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...33698377110266

Context. KBC are trying to evict people from a property in Strokestown. On Tuesday a gang of people from north of the border who identify as British moved in on the property, assaulting people ( there are videos floating about online about this). Last night a large group of people seemingly took the property back, 2 dogs are dead and several northern registered vans have been burnt out.

Several questions. Main one is what on earth were KBC thinking going down this road? Have they no idea of the historical context of doing this? Second question is how this is going to be framed by the national media.

Don't pay your mortgage, you lose your house. Is that too simplistic?

Indeed, however the optics of using that method of eviction are horrific to say the least and it has seemingly inspired some sort of a destructive reaction that really helps nobody here

But getting the likes of that to come into our country to force people out? They should have been chopped up the minute they came near the property.

A loyalist eviction squad has been evicted in Roscommon! The comments on the video has been quite supportive of the raid, this is maybe a turning point in the eviction war.

You want to try do it with a woman dressed in a business suit maybe? How would she have fared during this retaliation attack?

Evictions can be dangerous and it's completely understandable that property owners would use a few burly security men to secure their property.

This is farm land, bidx1 (formally allsop) will sell your mother's wedding ring but recently had to end all involvement with the sale of repossessed Farm land

Farmers have zero regard for the law when it comes to banks trying to enforce debts on land, I was raised on a farm BTW

I'd be more concerned about the vigilante anti eviction thugs who burned out cars and disregarded the rule of law.

A turning point in the "eviction war" would be if the mortgage payers who pay their own way and also those of defaulters, got a break .

Yeah, caused the death of a dog also.

Complete thugs. We have courts for a reason, you can't just pick and choose when you want to listen to them and then go assaulting people, burning cars and harming animals.
