– campaigned to save the Explorer St public housing from demolition and held a BBQ for residents
– held a bike ride to support the pop-up bike lanes to become permanent
– campaigned to save the Erko Rd Community Garden
– had a win in calling for developers to be levied for affordable housing in the City of Sydney
– campaigned for One Vote One Value in council elections, holding a public forum
– campaigned to stop the building of 390 apartments within the Sydney Park block
– campaigned against more poker machines at the Rose of Australia Hotel
– donated to OzHarvest, NSW Council for Civil Liberties and PlanningAlerts
– endorsed the Redfern Waterloo Aboriginal Affordable Housing Campaign
– maintained our affiliations with the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre and Better Planning Network, and
– kept the community informed via regular updates on email, facebook and twitter.
