Grandmothers Against Detention: Freedom Ride to Canberra


Dear Grandmothers and Friends of Grandmothers.

We are going to tell our elected representatives we will NOT stand by and allow the detention of babies, children, and their families.

WE will NOT stand by and watch 267 asylum-seekers in Australia be returned to Nauru – babies, children and families. We’ve participated in numerous rallies, vigils, walks, chants and postcard and letter-writing campaigns. Now we’re heading for Federal Parliament.

We’re going to insist that incarcerating children breaks our international obligations under the Human Rights Convention
