Protesters will try to prevent the auction of a Glebe public housing property at 6pm on Wednesday 10 March
“The planned sale of the home at 92 Cowper Street Glebe is the latest example of the NSW Government policy of getting rid of public housing by stealth,” said local resident Emily Vallentine.
“Its totally disgusting that the government is selling off public housing when there are about 50,000 people on the waiting list.
“We’ll be making lots of noise to try to stop the auction.”
“This 3 bedroom family house should have been refurbished and made available for a low income family,” she said.
“Instead of selling off public housing, the government should be building thousands of new public homes each year, providing many urgently needed jobs at the same time.
“Sydney is in the middle of a housing and homelessness crisis. But instead of addressing the causes and effects of this crisis, the government is making it worse by selling off public housing properties like this one,” Ms Valentine concluded.
