On International Human Rights Day weekend, join public housing tenants, renters, homeless people, unionists and community organisers in demanding real action for housing justice.
The housing crisis is the worst in living memory. At least 750,000 people live in housing stress and are in desperate need of secure housing.
In Victoria former Premier Daniel Andrews declared the demolition of 44 public housing towers. This plan will displace over 10,000 families.
In NSW the Labor government of Chris Minns has reneged on its anti-privatisation election promise and is trying to demolish public housing estates at Waterloo South, South Eveleigh and 82 Wentworth Road, Glebe. It has demolished the Arncliff public housing estate while Telopea’s ‘Three Sister’ towers lie empty.
Take action for housing justice on Saturday December 9. Defend and Extend Public Housing, and Freeze Rents.
Meet at Explorer Street Estate, Explorer Street, South Eveleigh. Convoy to Waterloo BBQ and Sydney Street Choir at 12.30pm, 95 Wellington St, Waterloo by 12.30pm.
