Welcome Refugees – National Palm Sunday rally, 9 April

WELCOME REFUGEES – CLOSE THE CAMPS – 1pm / Sunday 9 April / Civic Square (ACT Assembly)

Canberra welcomes refugees! Join us for the Canberra ‘Welcome Refugees: Close the Camps’ rally on Palm Sunday – just one of countless rallies occurring around the country on 9 April in support of refugees. Demand an end to mandatory offshore detention and the immediate safe resettlement of all those whom Australia have imprisoned indefinitely and without charge on Manus Island and Nauru. Speakers TBC

This Palm Sunday we will also be hosting a 48hr vigil and installation in Civic Square from 3pm Friday to 3pm Sunday, featuring art, music, information, and performance. Please see the Facebook page for more details, and be sure to invite your friends.
