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.
This Palm Sunday we will also be hosting a 48hr vigil and installation in Civic Square from 1pm Friday until the Rally on Sunday, featuring art, music, information, and performance. Please see the Facebook event for more details, and be sure to invite your friends.
