Fix Housing

Solving Melbourne's Housing Crisis

Community Rally: Celebrate and Defend Public Housing



The state Labor government wants to sell off inner city public land. It plans to give property developers access to land that is currently used for public housing. It has announced a large scale "renewal" program that will involve the forced removal of tenants and the demolition of 9 housing estates across Melbourne.

Thousands of new homes will be built on the estates but the vast majority of these will be privately owned. The developers stand to make big profits by cashing in on land that should be used for public housing.

There are nearly 35,000 Victorians on the public housing wait list and there is a housing affordability crisis across most of the state. The need for thousands of new public housing homes is critical. Instead, the government wants to let developers in to build thousands of unaffordable private apartments. 

Join this community rally organised by the Public Housing Defence Network to demand:

- No to the sell off of public housing land
- Don't let developers destroy existing communities
- Build more public housing 
- Stop the privatisation of public housing 

This event will include:
- music
- performances
- free BBQ
- facepainting
- kids' jumping castle
- speeches from MPs, residents and supporters

All welcome.
