Dear refugee supporters,
This is to inform you of our public forum which will review and analyse the rhetoric surrounding “people smuggling”. We are all influenced by what the media and politicians say about this, and RAC wants to provide an opportunity to rethink the whole business. Please come along yourselves, and invite your staff, volunteers, students, and where appropriate, your clients. Please help us spread the message about this event by relaying it through your own networks.
Mark Plunkett, Qld barrister representing Indonesian fishermen, including juveniles, in people smuggling cases.

When: 3pm, Saturday 3rd March.
Where: Kurilpa Hall, 174 Boundary St, West End.
Getting there: Street parking; 199 bus from Adelaide St, City.
Further info: Paul, paul , ph.3392 3843.
The details of the forum are below. Also find attached a copy of our flier, which you may spread around electronically or else print out.
We hope to see at least some of you on the day. Best wishes.
Refugee Action Collective, Qld
