Resources About Australian Housing Justice and Unwaged Rights Campaigns

Iain McIntyre, historian with the Commons Social Change Library, has gathered a collection of case studies and stories of how communities have organised to secure housing, financial and other support for the unwaged and those on low incomes. These campaigns exposed the structural issues at the root of poverty and homelessness and forged community power and solidarity in response to them. In doing so they challenged negative and paternalistic myths which ‘blame the victim’. They not only provide inspiration, but also point to tactics, strategies and approaches that can be adapted and applied during the current economic crisis.
