The Australian government introduced the Border Force Act to try and cover up it’s human rights abuses. In over two years more people have died in detention on Manus Island than what have been settled. There is growing evidence of rape and torture of asylum seekers and refugees on Nauru. The forceful removal of Mojgan Shamsalipoor to Darwin, away from her husband, her school, her friends is just the latest outrage. The Australian government is trying to break people’s spirit and force them to give up their claims of asylum and return to danger. To hide this abuse they are threatening doctors and teachers and other detention workers with two years jail for speaking out. But doctors and others have said they will defy this threat. It’s time we gave Peter Dutton the message:
* NO TO THE BORDER FORCE ACT
* NO DEPORTATIONS – FREE MOJGAN
* CLOSE NAURU & MANUS NOW
* NO BOAT TURN BACKS
This protest will be held during the morning peak hour so bring a big clear sign to show the passing traffic how you feel.
