On Saturday 28th January Unlock NAMA opened an occupied building in the center of Dublin for a day of lectures about NAMA, Ireland's 'Bad Bank.' The event was cut short by a large number of police who turned up and ordered them out of the building. In this 40 minute interview Andrew Flood interviews Cat & Moira from Unlock NAMA about the occupation, what NAMA is and what Unlock NAMA demands.

We start off with some background on the property boom in Ireland and how NAMA came about before moving on to look at the events of Saturday, how Unlock NAMA ties into the global rebellion against the crisis and what the next steps are.

Unlock NAMA has three main demands:
1) Make NAMA properties available for social and community use
2) Publish full addresses and details on all properties under NAMA
3) Publish full details on all sales of NAMA assets
