A rally to ‘demand reform’ and ‘tackle the current housing crisis’ will be held Saturday September 9, from 3pm at Main Beach, Byron Bay.
Organisers are The Greens, Reclaim Our Recovery Lismore and the National Union of Students’ Get A Room campaign. They are also ‘encouraging us all to see beyond the commodification of a basic human right to start a movement to get every Australian a house’.
Speakers include federal Greens candidate, Mandy Nolan, Chels Hood Withey (The Seeding), and Andy George (Reclaim Our Recovery Lismore).
The group’s objectives are: a rent freeze; build more public housing; raise rent assistance; tax property developers; strengthen renters’ rights; end for-profit student accommodation; implement a corporate super-profits tax and fund community-led recovery for climate chaos related disasters.
