Stand Up For Refugees Rally – Brisbane- 11 October 2015

NO Turnbacks
• Close Manus & Nauru
• NO Border Force Act
• End Mandatory Detention

NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION

Speakers include:

*Jacob Rice, teacher and Manus Island whistle-blower

*Mark Isaacs, Nauru whistler-blower and author of
‘Undesirables: Inside Nauru’

*Rima Filhan, Syrian human rights activist

*Jessica Walker and Milad Jafari, Free Mojgan campaign

The growing evidence of rape and torture of asylum seekers and refugees on Nauru and Manus Island has reinforced the horror of offshore processing. There has been widespread defiance of the government’s attempt to silence detention whistleblowers through the Border Force Act. Doctors, teachers and allied health workers have all staged protests and declared their intent to defy the law. Join us to raise our voices against the Abbott government’s anti-refugee policies and demand change.

*CLOSE MANUS AND NAURU
*NO TO THE BORDER FORCE ACT
*NO DEPORTATION – FREE MOJGAN
*NO TURNBACKS
