Stand Up For Refugees Rally

As the 2nd Anniversary of Operation Sovereign Borders approaches all the horrors of Manus and Nauru remain.There is no permanent resttlement in sight for refugees in these detention centres, and systematic sexual abuse continues. Doctors have been over-ruled by government, victims have been denied appropriate medical treatment, and remain stuck where attacks took place.

Now the Coalition Goverment is threatening doctors, nurses, teachers, counsellors and other workers in the detention regime with two years jail if they talk about what they witness. 

Join us and dozens of other community groups as we stand up against these inhumane and cruel policies. 

Speakers include:

  • Senator Sarah Hanson Young - Australian Greens
  • Mohammed Baqiri - Refugee Activist & Afghan refugee
  • Reza Yarahmahdi - Refugee Activist & Iranian Kurdish refugee
  • Christine Craik - National Vice President of The Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW)
