On 19 January around 70 activists met to review the work of RAC Canberra and to plan our campaign for the next period. Some key decisions taken were:
- A key focus for our work in the next four months will be building for Palm Sunday on 14 April. This is very likely to be during the Federal election campaign.
- Since there has been a major shift in public opinion against offshore detention on Manus and Nauru and because of the new-look crossbench in the House of Representatives, our theme for Palm Sunday will be “Enough is Enough: All Off Manus and Nauru in 2019”.
- We voted to change our name from the slightly bureaucratic-sounding “Refugee Action Committee” to “Refugee Action Campaign”.
Many other suggestions for action came up and a more detailed account of them can be found here.
