Solidarity Actions in West and East Auckland against Sale of State Housing

 Ob Saturday 20th April, The  Day of Action Against  the  Sale of State Houses saw actions of  solidarity  in Glen Innes , Mt Albert and Sandringham.

 The Tamaki Housing Action Group Protested  a meeting  of developers and builders in Glen Innes.

The  "Creating Communities" group (alliance of builders and developers sponsored by Housing NZ) did a presentation in the primary school hall. The Tamaki Housing Group protested outside    with placards.  Some  went inside to challenge the developers and builders, and Housing New Zealand representatives,  and to ask questions.

In Mt Albert protesters  from Waitemata Unite, Mana, Auckland Action Against Poverty, and other supporters held a mock auction of Melissa Lee's office. The office was "sold"to a  homeless person for fifty cents. The protesters then went to Haverstock Rd in Sandringham, to protest the sale, destruction, and removal of state houses in that street. One block of land (now behind a huge fence) sold for more than $8 million dollars. 

The Mt Albert/ Sandringham protest was shown on Maori Television's Te Kaea that evening. To view the news item see"

This is the right of the people to protest against the injustice. The unity in nation makes the evils far away from them.
