Rural Australians for Refugees Bellingen and Nambucca Districts
Saturday, 5 December 2015 – Valla Beach
The markets are a great opportunity for our group to publicise the cause for the humane and compassionate treatment of asylum seekers and to continue our campaign to raise public awareness of the terrible conditions on Nauru and Manus islands. Asylum seekers on Manus and Nauru continue to be treated harshly in prison-like conditions, though they have committed no crimes. Many of them have now survived up to three years in these intolerable hellholes , with no end in sight. Not a single refugee has so far been settled in PNG.
Please consider joining us on the market stall for an hour or two on Saturday, or just drop by to say hello and to show your solidarity. We will have a new petition to Malcolm Turnbull for you to sign!
We will be setting up the stall at 7.00 am, and we would appreciate support from 9.00 am onwards, until 1.00 pm.
