ON WORLD REFUGEE DAY 20 June 2017 – Geelong will hold a local action – a candlelight vigil and rally outside the Geelong Town Hall – 5pm – all welcome, bring candles.
A minutes silence will be observed in honour of those seeking asylum who have died in detention, and all who continue to suffer trauma awaiting protection, both offshore and in our country.
The rally will also draw attention to the mistruths Minister Dutton continues to tell about incidents on Manus Island, and his attacks on people waiting to submit claims for asylum.
