Come find out in a COVID-safe tour, about Sydney's feminist history — the women, queers and the militant class struggle events excluded from the annals of public memory because they challenge the order of establishment patriarchal governments.
A feminist people's history walk, this expedition will stop at Aboriginal and women convict rebellion sites, locations of queer uprisings, migrant women uprising mementos and sites of women's literary and journalistic endeavours.
In NSW tenants are in dire need of rent relief.
One in three Australians rent - some 2.5 million households. A 2019 survey showed 40 per cent of tenants are in rental stress - they pay more than 30% of their income in rent.
In Sydney, one of the most expensive cities in the world, an extremely high 64% of all renters are in rental stress.
This is all before the COVID19 crisis.
With lay-offs, reduction of work hours, the prospect of JobSeeker and JobKeeper being removed, pay freezes for front-line workers being proposed, tenants are even more stressed.

A lot of us expect to come under housing stress in September/October. We have under 7 weeks before the eviction moratorium ends, with JobSeeker & JobKeeper set to be reduced at the same time, many of us will not be able to pay our rent. This is a public forum to try and address the situation as a community, come along! For a variety of reasons, we expect a lot of evictions at the end of September unless we can act to stop them.
