Tonight, a meeting was held at the Redfern Community Centre to discuss the future of the development of The Block. Contrary to agreement, the plans now do not seem to include low cost housing for Aboriginal families, a condition set on the project after court proceedings in 2015. Leading the meeting were Aunty Jenny Munro and daughter, Lorna Munro, who have been spearheading opposition to the development.
From 2014 to late 2015, Aunty Jenny Munro led a 15 month protest on the site by establishing the Redfern Aboriginal Tent Embassy. Since its closure over 3 years ago, the site has been fenced off and left vacant as development plans proceed.
