‘Justice for Refugees’
“We have lived in Australia for more than seven years under policy that discriminates against us based on our method of arrival. We sought humanitarian aid and escape from conflict, violence and persecution in our homelands. We are now suffering under Australia’s inhumane policies that offer us no secure future and further persecute us for seeking protection.”
Melbourne Speakers and details include:
Hakeem Al Araibi – footballer and Bahraini refugee
Greens leader – Richard Di Natale

Ged Kearney – ALP MP for Cooper
We call for the government to:
1 – End laws that discriminate against asylum seekers living in Australia
2 – Reinstate a Fair Process with Permanent Protection Visa
3 – Allow Family Reunion Rights
We seek your support on behalf of more than 30,000 asylum seekers who have been living in Australian since 2012. We have been separated from our families and children
for up to 8 years. Visa processing under the ‘fast track’ system is
unfair. Some of us have faced homelessness as we get no government support. All of us face permanent insecurity.
Temporary protection visas are cruel. We want the same
human rights as everyone in Australia.
Who we are: We are a movement called ‘Justice for Refugees’, established on 1st of August 2019. We have lived in Australia for more than seven years under policy that discriminates against us based on our method of arrival. We sought humanitarian aid and escape from conflict, violence and persecution in our homelands. We are now suffering under Australia’s inhumane policies that offer us no secure future and further persecute us for seeking protection.
