Petition to Wendy Lovell, Minister for Housing in Victoria.
We , the undersigned, believe that all of us have the right to safe, secure and truly affordable housing.
Victorians are sick and tired of privatisation disasters that have failed miserably, and ended up costing taxpayers billions of dollars.
We care about people who have nowhere to live, - families, young people, people with disabilities including mental illnesses, our senior citizens and all others experiencing 'housing stress'.

TEXT OF FLIER
"Dear Fellow Citizens of Victoria,
The government is privatising public housing, a PUBLIC ASSET estimated to be worth 18 BILLION DOLLARS! They are doing this without open, transparent and democratic debate. Most people are not even aware that public housing is being privatised by STEALTH. This is happening under the guise of ‘social’ and ‘community’ housing, and this privatisation agenda has happened around the world with predictable and disastrous social consequences. We all know that privatisations are all about making a HUGE profit for a small elite of wealthy and powerful people.
We do NOT want Australia to go down the same path as Canada, UK and the US; developed and prosperous countries with escalating poverty and homelessness.
