Dear ARAR people and friends,
The situation on Manus continues to be dire.
Last Wednesday lunchtime around 25 of us gathered in the Mall and walked around the shopping area with placards. Our half-hour protest drew attention to the Government’s shameful treatment of refugees.
At tonight’s meeting of Armidale Rural Australians for Refugees we decided to hold weekly half-hour protests on Thursdays from 4:45pm to 5:15pm, meeting at the Dangar Street end of the Mall, (near the New England Hotel) and then walking with signs.
Please come for just half an hour, to be visible in your opposition to the cruel and heartless treatment by our government, of the men in the detention centre on Manus.
If you can, make a sign expressing your particular concern.
