Join us to demand justice for refugees, and the immediate evacuation of those on Manus and Nauru.
The mountains contingent will get the 11.38pm train from Katoomba and will be on the second carriage from the front up top.
Unless of course there is trackwork in which case we will get the earlier train that leaves Katoomba at 10.38.
We will be behind the bus stops on Eddy Ave. Join us.
BMRSG t-shirts should be worn and if people need to purchase one they can email me firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 47823384. They are $25 each and we have 4 sizes.
The asylum seekers on Manus have been forced into new detention camps. But the crisis there is not over. Some of the new camps face regular cuts to power and water. And the threat of attack is constant.
In January another small number of those on Manus and Nauru will go to the US for resettlement. But there are still over 1500 recognised refugees left behind. We still need to demand that the Australian government “Bring Them Here”.
There are also over 10,000 people seeking asylum in the community still waiting for their claims to be processed, many unable to work and with only minimal income support. Almost 2000 have already been refused refugee status under unfair new “fast track” processing rules that now apply and face deportation.
Join us on Palm Sunday to raise our voices and demand justice and freedom for refugees.
