We will be holding public rallies on the steps of the Victorian State Parliament, Spring St Melbourne, between 12 noon – 2:00pm on:

• Wednesday 8th February 
• Wednesday 8th March 

to demonstrate to the government, the Opposition and the cross benchers in the Legislative Council our opposition to governments outsourcing their responsibility to provide affordable housing for all Victorians to a private and not for profit non-government sector that, at best, will only be able to provide for the needs of sections of the community, not all Victorians.
