revisiting #freethe9towers

Monday, 4 January 2021 - 8:30am to 9:00am

As we welcome a new year, and Victoria settles into their new covid normal, one community still reeling from the lockdown are the residents of the nine towers. Most of you will remember that in July 2020, nine housing commission towers were forced into a hard lockdown.  Residents could only leave their homes for supervised exercise, on compassionate grounds and for emergencies. These detention orders were unprecedented and as we’ll show had a devastating effect on residents.
