Deans Marsh: Inaugural RAR Meeting & Film: Freedom Stories
18 April 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
6.30pm on Wednesday the 18th of April to the Deans Marsh Hall.
You are invited to a meeting in response to a number of local residents expressing interest in forming
a local refugee action group in Deans Marsh.
We will also be screening “Freedom Stories a collaborative documentary project from Flying Carpet Films.
It explores the achievements and stories of former ‘boat people’ who arrived in Australian waters seeking asylum from
the Middle East around 2001, a defining year in Australian politics.
Locked in remote detention centres and then placed on temporary protection visas, their limbo lasted for years.
Now Australian citizens, they are finally building secure lives and contributing to their new country.”
Hope to see you there
