Residents of Sydney high-rise estate use lights to protest against gentrification



Video by Clare Lewis, Carolina Sorensen, Tom Spark and Rotor Works.

Night after night, the windows of the tower blocks that make up the Waterloo Estate in Sydney have been gradually lit up in different colours as part of a public art project that aims to make the community more visible.

Triggered by the NSW state government's plans to redevelop the area, the #WeLiveHere2017 project has been gaining traction over the past few months and will now officially launch on Saturday night.

Five hundred residents in the Waterloo Estate's 60-storey Matavai and Turanga towers have been given coloured mood lights to hang in their windows. The colour of the lights is intended to express how they feel about the state government's plans.

The redevelopment, which was announced just before Christmas in 2015, will begin with a new metro station that will be located adjacent to the estate.
Currently in the masterplanning stage, the project will involve relocating at least 3,600 elderly, disabled and low-income residents ? a process that is expected to begin in 2018.
