October Housing Week - 'Decant' and Demolish the flats?

Wednesday, 25 October 2023 - 9:00am to 10:00am
New ‘community’ housing currently being built alongside the decommissioned public housing estate at 141 Nicholson St, Carlton. The new building on the left is short with stainless steel cladding and no green space, and the boarded up 16-storey brick building on the right has balconies and graffiti on the base of its façade. The sky is cloudy and traffic is passing on a street in the foreground with tram tracks and multiple lanes.

 After a 2-week cold-induced hiatus, Kevin and Karina return to the program for a belated housing week, catching up on the big news items we missed on the break, then later speaking to Shane McGrath from Housing for the Aged Action Group (HAAG) and housing activist Jack Verdins

 Discussing Daniel Andrews' shameful final announcement as premier to demolish all PH towers and why; we finish on previously successful campaigns and how the community has mobilised in response, with more direct actions around the corner.


 HAAG invites you to their Housing Justice Quilting Bee;

  • 11am-2pm,
