Sydney University Squatting Actions. Then…

Posted by on September 29, 2011

In 1993 squatters occupied buildings in Glebe owned by the University of Sydney which had been left empty for three years. The action was undertaken to highlight student homelessness and hardship and the lack of interest and action by tertiary institutions in the issue. The following news articles are just some of the coverage from the time.

  1. Once Was

    Know this one, the first Broadway shopfront squats and many others.
    Squatted in Wolloomooloo, Darlinghurst, Glebe, Annandale & Chippendale during the 80′s and early 90′s in Sydney. Also knew the Squatters Union Vic crew.

    A few other notable Sydney squats from then don’t seem to get a mention yet. The Gunnery Woolloomooloo, Pyrmont. Not so many cameras around then either. Much of it was never documented, except when it made the news.

    Great site
    Cheers
