The conditions in Australia’s detention centres on Manus Island and Nauru are atrocious. Report after report continues to detail abhorrent treatment, systemic abuse, and degrading conditions, as the camps are wracked by crisis after crisis. It is simply impossible that these men, women and children be held in these conditions. Most of these people have now been there over three years. This cannot continue. Enough is enough.
On Sunday October 30 Canberrans will rally in Civic Square (outside the ACT Assembly) along with thousands of other people around Australia to call for an end to the cruel treatment of those detained in Australia’s immigration centres in Nauru and Manus Island and demand justice for these people.
You are encouraged to organise groups from your community, to bring banners or placards, to help publicise the event or help out on the day itself. Together we can make this a huge rally. The more people who are able to lend a hand beforehand and on the day itself, the greater the impact of the rally will be.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer on or before the day, and be sure to mark on your calendar:
