Rally: Don't reopen Christmas Island

Join the Greens as we march to say no to Liberal and Labor's plan to reopen Christmas Island Detention Centre.

Following the passing of the amended Medivac Bill, Scot Morrison has announced his intention to reopen Christmas Island Detention Centre. He has stated that his aim is to transfer 300 sick people back into a detention centre almost as isolated and notorious as those on Manus Island and Nauru.

Join us to demand both onshore and offshore detention centres are shut down, that sick people are provided medical care on the mainland and are housed in the community, not locked away in a different barbed wire camp.

Speakers include:
Abdul Aziz Adam - Sudanese refugee, winner of the UN Martin Ennal Human Rights Defender Award, live from Manus Prison
Adam Bandt - Greens Deputy Leader
Pamela Curr - Long term asylum advocate

This important rally is happening right after the Climate Day Of Action, we will be heading there from door knocking events.
