This week we turn to two different areas long neglected by governments in Australia, now facing more dire consequences during the coronavirus pandemic: decarceration and housing justice. We hear from Tabitha Lean (Twitter), an advocate for incarcerated people on pushes to free people inside prison at risk of death from virus outbreaks and politics towards prison abolition. This interview previously aired on 3CR Thursday Breakfast with Priya Kunjan. Second, we hear from Eirene Tsolidis Noyce on the housing justice organising of precarious renters with the Renters and Housing Union (Victoria).
