Protest for public housing

Issue 

Members of the Bendigo Street housing protest rallied in Melbourne on June 26 to demand affordable public housing and condemn the privatisation of public housing.

Victoria is facing a housing crisis, with more than 25,000 people homeless and 32,000 people on the waiting list for public housing.

There are an estimated 80,000 empty homes, including many compulsorily acquired by the government to build the East West Link that now remain empty.
