Hawkesbury RAR

New Hawkesbury Group Supporting Refugees
A Hawkesbury branch of Rural Australians for Refugees has been formed and will be holding its first meeting on Thursday 30 August, 7:30pm at Richmond Uniting Church.

The recent vigil held outside the Windsor office of Susan Templeman was well attended. It consisted of concerned people from the Hawkesbury as well as people from the Blue Mountains. They were all there to call upon the government to close Manus and Nauru and bring those people to Australia and to remember the 12 who have died.

” We believe that the most effective means of protest is to have a group of people at the local level expressing their concern and abhorrence of current policies in the treatment of asylum seekers.”
