Refugee NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION FOR REFUGEES

Save lives -Protect refugees

AMNESTY CALL FOR NATIONAL ACTION

Our politicians are turning their backs on Australias impressive record of helping refugees fleeing war and persecution.
Tell them that punishing desperate people to score political points is not in line with Australian values of compassion
and generosity.

We successfully closed Woomera and Baxter.
We got children out of detention.
We stopped temporary protection visas.
Working together we can change government policy again.

Wear red and yellow and come and be part of our human life-ring!
