    Messages of welcome and gifts of love spread out across Sydney

    The Youth Shoebox Project has just completed its 5 year and delivered a record breaking 407 shoeboxes of gifts and messages of welcome to refugees and those seeking asylum across western Sydney and the Blue Mountains.
    Each shoebox contains something to love, something to play with, something for school, something for personal hygiene and other age-suitable goodies. The project is facilitated and supported by the Blue Mountains Refugee Support Group and local youth disability service, Able2.

    Prize-Winners in RAR/BMRSG National Video and Poster Competition 2020

    Empathy, outrage, compassion and fellow feeling come through loud and clear in entries from school students in the Video and Poster competition run by BMRSG and Rural Australians for Refugees.
    Messages like “Shine a light on the darkness”, “Struggle is real”, “It could be you“, “this could be your tomorrow” show a depth of heartfelt humanity and an understanding of the impact of our countries’ current policies on both refugees and people seeking asylum and on our nation’s soul.
    Prize winners announced. Congratulations all.

    Strengthening the Character Test Bill – What Can You Do?

    Strengthening the Character Test Bill – What Can You Do?

    In the next sitting of Parliament, the Coalition intends to bring on a vote on the Migration Amendment (Strengthening the Character Test) Bill 2019. The Bill has passed the House of Representatives and is now before the Senate.
    While framed as a simple adjustment to the Migration Act 1958 (the Act), the Bill, if passed into law, would increase the number of people in immigration detention and facing removal from the country.
    Both Labor and the Greens recommended the Bill be rejected, after a Senate Inquiry was warned of its dangers. The passage of the Bill now depends on the vote of unaligned Senators.
    Contact your Senator.
