TODAY: Pre-election rally: Close Manus, Close Nauru, Bring Them Here
19 June, 2016
Sydney Town Hall
Socialist Alternative Club
It's ON! Inside town hall, 1-2pm!!
We'll make a call at 2 as to whether we march to Belmore Park.
The last few months have seen a renewed growth in support for refugees, through the #LetThemStay capmaign to keep the 267 refugees from Manus and Nauru in Australia. So far the government has not dared attempt to send any one of the asylum seekers back.
With an election likely on 2 July, we need to keep up the pressure and deepen the movement for refugee rights to demand that Manus and Nauru together with all the detention camps are closed for good, and that the major parties end their support for the detention and punishment of refugees.
