Rudd has just announced devastating and inhumane measures against refugees, meaning that any refugee that arrives in Australia by boat, will be moved to PNG and will not be able to resettle in Australia.We need to reiterate that seeking asylum by boat is not a crime, and people have a human right to seek asylum and be resettled in Australia.
People are fleeing war-torn countries and political persecution and refugees deserve protection.
This sudden and cruel announcement should be met with loud opposition. Come join this snap protest outside Kevin Rudd’s office (653 Wynnum Rd, Morningside) on the first working day after the announcement.
SAY IT LOUD SAY IT CLEAR
REFUGEES ARE WELCOME HERE!
