Brisbane: World Refugee Day Pre-election Rally

18 June 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

World Refugee Day Pre-election Rally & March

When & where:

11am, Saturday 18th June, King George Square, Brisbane.

If we want to see an end to the government’s cruel policies to asylum seekers and refugees, both onshore and offshore, we must turn out in huge numbers on the occasion of World Refugee Day, in the middle of this election campaign, to let the government (and opposition also) know what revulsion exists in the community to their vicious, immoral policies towards innocent people seeking only safety from persecution.

Speakers include:

  • Queensland Senator Larissa Waters of The Greens
  • Dr Richard Kidd, Doctors for Refugees
  • Rev David Baker, Moderator of the Qld Synod of the Uniting Church in Australia
  • Ros McLennan, General Secretary, Qld Council of Unions

Close Manus.
Close Nauru.
Bring them here!
