Save Public Housing

The Victorian Labor Government plans to demolish all 44 public housing towers in Melbourne – and displace over 10,000 residents.

They want to sell off the land to developers for mostly private housing. Labor’s plan will force people out of their homes and tear communities apart. Selling-off public land will only make the housing crisis worse.

The Greens want Labor to immediately stop this privatisation of public housing. We want to protect communities, maintain existing public housing, and build more.

Public housing residents have the right to a safe, secure and affordable home.

Help stop the sell-off of public housing

The Greens are supporting a resident petition demanding that Labor stop the demolition and sell off of public housing.

If it reaches 2000 paper signatures, we can force a special debate in Parliament about Labor’s plan. This puts pressure on the government to stop the demolition and build more public housing.

Can you help collect paper petition signatures in your community?
