Jacob and Zane interview Newcastle University Students Association Enviro officer and ASEN rep Tim Buchanan regarding last Sunday’s protest against Commonwealth Bank’s lending to coal projects.

FOPHVIC is campaigning to keep Victoria’s public housing stock in public hands and stop the Andrews government from handing ownership of public housing to privately run “social housing” or community housing organisations.Handing control to these groups means the land is lost forever (as has been the case overseas) and tenants end up with less rights.
