This week, social housing rights group FRAPRU is organizing a series of actions in the lead up to the May 16th demonstration in front of the Ministry of finance in Quebec City. Yesterday, FRAPRU and the Ciizens Action Commitee of Verdun organized a gathering to demand 1000 new housings in the area. Protesters marched from the De l’Eglise metro station to minister of Economy Jacques Daoust’s office. The government official that received the written requests of social housings rights groups FRAPRU, POPIR housing committe and CACV failed to answer any questions from the protesters. Off the Hour’s Amelie Phillipson was there and brings us this report.
