Valla Beach Market
2 February 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Valla Beach market: Saturday 2nd February, 9.00 am to 1.00 pm
Our next market stall is at the Valla Beach market this Saturday, from 9.00 am until 1.00 pm. We have our new open letter to Minister Dutton for people to sign, updated leaflets to hand out and merchandise to sell on behalf of the Asylum Seekers Centre (ASC). The markets offer us a great opportunity to interact with people and to help them better understand the harsh reality of our government’s cruel asylum policy. Let’s not forget that there are still more than 1000 people detained indefinitely on Manus and Nauru, and that most of them have been languishing there for up to six years. Only massive public pressure, as happened with the push to remove all the children from Nauru, will shift the policy of the Coalition and the Labor opposition. We must maintain our efforts to bring about a humane and compassionate solution for all these people, who have committed no crime and who have lawfully sought our protection under the Refugee Convention.
