No Homelessness Ban 2017
The mainstream media, and in particular the Herald Sun, are running a campaign to demonise those experiencing homelessness, using labels like "professional beggars". Lord Mayor Robert Doyle is expected to take a proposal to Melbourne City Council on 28 February to ban people sleeping in the Council area. If you want to hear about this issue from people who have experienced homelessness, tune in to Roominations on Thursdays at noon or listen back anytime.
