PROTEST AGAINST OFFSHORE PROCESSING
WELCOME REFUGEES: NOT MALAYSIA, NOT NAURU

GUARANTEED RESETTLEMENT OF ALL REFUGEES FROM INDONESIA

1pm Sunday August 12, State Library

Both major parties have cynically attempted to use the recent boat sinking tragedies that claimed the lives of around 90 refugees off the coast of Christmas Island to solidify offshore processing as part of Australia’s asylum policy. This is about strengthening a refugee policy that seeks to deter refugees and turn them back, rather than help them. If you reject the inhumane and unjust treatment of asylum seekers, which includes the mandatory detention of thousands of innocent people, then join the Refugee Action Collective (Vic) in protesting against these attempts to establish offshore processing. Stand up for human rights, free the refugees! Contact Declan 0400 863 038 for more info.

Speakers include:

Pamela Curr – Asylum Seeker Resource Centre

Richard Di Natale – Greens Senator

Sivakumar – Tamil community

Abe Ape – from The Future of Rap
