Greens: 25 days and counting, still no action from the McGowan Government while numbers grow in Fremantle tent city

Greens spokesperson for Homelessness Hon Alison Xamon MLC has called out the shameful inaction of the McGowan State Government and the Minister for Community Services while more than 100 people have been living in tents at Fremantle’s Pioneer Park since Boxing Day.

“Everyone deserves a safe place to sleep at night,” Ms Xamon said. “We have 100 people living in tents in the Minister for Communities’ own electorate of Fremantle - literally directly across the street from her office.”

Greens demand answers: State Government missing in action while thousands sleep rough

Greens spokesperson for Homelessness Hon Alison Xamon MLC has demanded that the State Government’s Minister for Community Services takes action to address the growing homelessness crisis in WA, which has been unfolding in the Minister’s own electorate of Fremantle over the last week.

A camp of around 100 homeless Western Australians was established in Fremantle’s Pioneer Park after volunteers from Freo Street Kitchen organised a free meal for local community members doing it tough.
