Hands Off Glebe

Residents are continuing to call on the NSW government to stop its destruction of public housing in Glebe and Eveleigh. Rachel Evans reports.

Glebe public housing resident Emily Bullock is adamant that, while her home could do with some repairs, it must not be allowed to be bulldozed by the state government, reports Rachel Evans.

Residents called an emergency action on March 10 to stop the auction of a home in Glebe, reports Kerry Smith.

Despite the rain, a BBQ brought together residents of Explorer Street in Eveleigh, near Redfern, and others campaigning for public housing on February 13. Pip Hinman reports.

The New South Wales government's plan for “social housing” is all about helping its developer mates and pushing poorer communities out of inner city spaces. Paul Gregoire investigates.

The recent announcement by NSW housing minister Melinda Pavey to demolish public housing in Glebe and Eveleigh is a disgrace, writes Andrew Chuter.

More than 100 people protested against the New South Wales government's plan to bulldoze 112 public housing dwellings in Glebe, reports Peter Boyle.

Residents in the Glebe public housing estate were letterboxed on November 11 about the demolition of their homes. The next day, public housing residents in Eveleigh received a similar letter. Rachel Evans reports.

The New South Wales Baird government has announced an historic decision to privatise public housing. In a $22 billion bonanza for the government's property developer mates, public housing estates will be torn down and rebuilt into places where private tenants and homeowners outnumber social housing tenants by 70% to 30%. NSW Coalition Minister for Social Housing Brad Hazzard announced the state government's "Future Directions for Social Housing" policy. It includes the transfer of 35% of public housing to community housing organisations.
