The housing crisis is deepening and expanding, as many of us are experiencing firsthand. The struggle to dwell — housing struggle — has existed in so-called Australia since 1788. Our collective fight for dwelling justice must be in solidarity with the fact of First Nations sovereignty.  

From September 8 - 29, each Thursday from midday - 1pm 3CR will be broadcasting some of the conversations from the Forum for Dwelling Justice that brought together grassroots individuals, groups and activist-scholars to identify the radical potential for resistance to dispossession, displacement and precarity in our campaign work. 

The purpose of the event was to foreground the relationship between ongoing colonial dispossession, housing injustice, incarceration, racial violence and poverty, and to build solidarity among movements.

The forum was organised by RMIT's Centre for Urban Research and supported by the International Journal of Housing Policy, Renters and Housing Union and 3CR Community Radio.
