1986 - Squatting the St Vincent De Pauls Girls Orphanage


In 1986 the Orphanage had been vacant for roughly 20 years. This led to a group of 30 squatters living in the orphanage. The site was squatted for approximately 9 months. The squatters took care of the site and lived peacefully in it. The local council members were not apposed to the squatters living in the Orphanage. After nine months of living in the orphanage they were given their eviction notice. Vandals stole copper piping and did thousands of dollars of damage to the property.
