The tent city, Martin Place

A resident of Martin Place looks on as Diane Evers, a Western Australian Greens MLC, talked today with Lanz Priestley, spokesperson for the tent city. Priestley was critical of the state government. "As fast as she houses them more people come," he said, referring to the Minister for Social Housing, Pru Goward. Evers' husband Tony, who was also there today, told me that in his state they have had a lot of people leaving the state since the end of the mining investment boom, resulting in lower rents there.
