  • Radical Routes Ireland Speaking Tour

      

    Radical Routes Ireland presents

    'HOMES WITHOUT LANDLORDS': CO-OPS AS A SOLUTION TO THE HOUSING CRISIS

    How to set up a housing co-operative 

     

    All-Island speaking tour 2014:Cork Oct 25th, Dublin Oct 26th, Galway Nov 1st, Derry Nov 2nd.

     

    Today in Ireland we find ourselves with an acute housing crisis, but the general discourse implies that all the power to affect change lies with private business and government.We want to promote and encourage the ideas of a grassroots-led approach to solving the housing crisis.

    People can empower themselves by working together in their communities to make housing a collectively-owned resource rather than an asset to be speculated on by developers.Co-operative housing could offer a way out of the precarious rental market and the trap of long-term mortgage debt.

  • Radical Routes were invited to talk about cooperatives at the Dublin Anarchist Book Fair in April

    A packed pub basement listened to two members describe the history and principles behind cooperatives and how Radical Routes works. There’s been a growing interest in starting a cooperative network similar to Radical Routes in Ireland and this was reflected in both the turnout and the questions that were asked at the end of the session. The feedback afterwards was all positive and enthusiastic, serving as a good reminder of just how liberating coops can be. Seomra Spraoi Social Centre in Dublin has held fundraiser events for funding Radical Routes excursions into Ireland, to spread the word about cooperative living. Hopefully the network will be able to support in some way.  A number of Seomra Spraoi members have attended gatherings and others hope attend as well to see a radical cooperative network in action.

     
  • Norwich Bicycle Repair Co-operative Ltd (NBRC) seek a new member

    Radical Routes associate member NBRC is seeking a new member for a paid position in its busy bicycle workshop based at the Dr Bike Cycle Repair Centre, University of East Anglia, Norwich.

    We're looking for someone who wants to mend bikes, but more than that is also interested in becoming a full and active member of our workers' co-operative with joint responsibility for the organisation, management and development of our ethical business. We've currently got two full members. We've only been trading since January 2014 so are still at an exciting stage of developing our co-operative business.

    The position is initially for 24 hours per week (potentially rising in the future) with a structured 6-9 month trial period (paid) which will have to be successfully completed before you can be accepted as a full-member.

     

    More information and details of how to apply are on our website
