FROM SUPPORT TO DEFEND! WE ARE NOT BACKING DOWN!

Home Sweet Home is defying the court order to leave Apollo House, as the demands of the residents have not been met and they have been forced to return to Apollo House after being placed in sub-standard accommodation by the government. We will not leave until every single resident is guaranteed a safe home, as was agreed in the negotiations. The high court has not granted our appeal for an extension of our stay in Apollo House.

Come and join us in a public vigil tonight at 8pm at Apollo House and sleep out with us if you can! We will not back down, we will not leave. Stand with us to defend the rights and safety of the residents and to stand up against the government’s attempts to subvert the agreements of Monday night between Dublin City Council, Simon Coveney and the Home Sweet Home representatives.

This is not over. Show your support by joining the public rally tonight and sharing our posts and updates with the hashtag #EndHomelessnessNow #ApolloHouse #HomeSweetHome

Tonight’s gathering will be a rally, a vigil and a sleep out combined! Anyone who is planning on sleeping out make sure to bring (extra) warm clothes, sleeping bags, tents and everything else to keep you warm during the night! Instruments for some music, warm drinks and food would and banners also help to keep up the good spirits! See you there!
