Eviction Defenders Campaign: Introduction Session - March 2022


Will you come?


Join our new campaign to resist evictions - come to our very first information and training session!


No-one should be evicted into homelessness, especially not in one of the wealthiest nations on the planet.

Evictions tear communities apart. They can mean losing your home, possessions, and social support networks. Evictions perpetuate an exhausting cycle of poverty and discrimination which can destroy a person’s sense of dignity and mental health.

Resisting evictions is mutual aid which means supporting our neighbours through a difficult period in their lives. Even just the threat of resistance can stop an eviction, or delay it until the people being evicted can find a new home.

On Sunday 20 March, we are offering an introduction session to take part in an eviction resisting campaign.

We will talk you through housing justice principles and the purpose and direction of the campaign before shifting to practical considerations:

- How does one build an anti-eviction campaign?

- What actions are needed to prepare for it and build its capacity?

- How creative can we get in designing it?

We are living in a housing crisis and it is time for action. Whether you just want to hear a little more about what this is going to look like or you are ready to join in on the action, come along on Sunday 20 March at 2pm, at the meeting room of the Gabba Ward office, 2/63 Annerley Road, Woolloongabba.

Please RSVP to  so we have an idea of how many people will come.

Access to the meeting room: The meeting room is accessible via the back door. Enter the T shaped car park via the driveway at 1 Crown street and turn left at the fork. The entrance is on the left hand-side.

Accessibility: unfortunately the office doesn't have wheelchair accessible toilets. If you require an AUSLAN interpreter let us know so we can get one organised.

If you have any questions prior to the event, feel free to give a call to the Gabba ward office where the event will be held at 3403 2165 or an email at [email protected]

This event is taking place on the unceded lands of the Jagera and Turrbal peoples, who have been resisting injustice and authoritarian repression by the colonial nation-state for hundreds of years
