19jun1:00 pm3:00 pmPre-election rally: Close Manus, Close Nauru, Bring Them Here

Event Details

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.

Speakers include:
*Margaret Pomeranz: (former Movie Show presenter)
*Evan Davis plus Judith & Jennifer: (ex-teachers on Manus & Nauru)
*refugee speaker TBC
*Lee Rhiannon (NSW Greens Senator)
*young Labor activist
