How Plantation Workers Won Housing After 26-Year Struggle!

How Plantation Workers Won Housing After 26-Year Struggle!

Early in May, Housing and Local Government Minister Nga Kor Ming announced the 26-year-old housing woes of five estates in Hulu Selangor and Kuala Selangor have been resolved. 245 workers from Ladang Mary, Ldg Sg Tinggi, Minyak, Nigel Gardner, and Ladang Bukit Tagar will receive subsidised affordable landed housing.

But why did these workers have to struggle for 26 years for something that should be a fundamental human right – adequate housing? What can we learn from it?

We speak to S. Arutchelvan, Deputy Chairperson of Parti Sosialis Malaysia.
