Press Release – Vanessa Cole
Protesters occupied a house in Sandringham last night in protest against the selling of two state homes (94 and 96 Haverstack Road), set to be auctioned off this morning at 4 Viaduct Harbour Ave.
State homes are an essential asset to Aotearoa and provide families with shelter and life chances.
This occupation represents the reclaiming of public housing, which is being sold off around New Zealand to private developers, with little solutions to solve the housing crisis. The selling of state homes uproots communities.
Trouble will continue for those that are involved in the selling of state housing.
Supporters are encouraged to come out and support the protestors during the auctioning of the houses this morning at 4 Viaduct Harbour Ave.
