Lismore (NSW): Vigil for Refugee Rights

December 13 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Every Thursday at 4.30pm outside Kevin Hogan’s Electorate Office,  63 Molesworth Street, Lismore NSW

Join Amnesty International Lismore at their weekly Thursday vigil to advocate for the rights of people seeking asylum.

Stand with Amnesty Lismore outside local Federal member Kevin Hogan’s office, and show your opposition to the government’s choice to detain people simply seeking safety.

Refugees want what we all want – a safe place to call home where their kids can go to school, and families can live in peace and contribute to our community.

Yet, for over three years, the Australian Government has indefinitely trapped over 1,200 men, women and children on Nauru and over 800 men on Manus Island. Rather than assessing all people asking for protection fairly, the Australian Government has created a deliberate system of abuse.

At Amnesty International we’re asking for and working towards a solution for people seeking asylum that really works, that’s fair, and that doesn’t deny people their basic rights.

It’s up to us to show the government there is support for this solution and for them to do the right thing.

So join Amnesty Lismore each and every Thursday afternoon, and help create a fair and safe future for people seeking asylum.
