Why is this happening? State government neighbourhood sell-off

Resident groups in Millers Point and The Rocks are protesting the state government’s plans to sell more than 300 homes. The public housing sell-off is widely considered a sell-out with regard to community and heritage values. The announcement by Community Services Minister Pru Goward to evict an entire community has bought disparate groups together, along with many concerned residents and citizens.

If Col James had a passion, it was undoubtedly housing – not just the creation of a building but adding to the lives of so many, often vulnerable people who longed for a home. He used his architectural skills to engage with all sorts of groups of people – students, Aboriginal communities and the homeless. Gentle soul that he was, he was still a very determined fighter.
