National Day of Action for refugees follows with a protest this Sunday at Kangaroo PointProtesters were emotional at a National Day of Action for refugees outside a detention centre in Kangaroo Point last Sunday. They gathered in solidarity with 120 refugees and asylum seekers detained inside Kangaroo Point Central Hotel, who have been protesting their conditions from the hotel balcony for months. 

​​​​​​​Some activists remain at the site on a 24/7 Community blockade of the detention centre to prevent detainees from being removed to BITA, a higher-security facility. Full story and photography by 4ZZZ Reporter Lillian Rangiah here.

​​​​​​​This Sunday, June 21 Refugee Solidarity Brisbane / Meanjin and Socialist Alternative Brisbane are leading a peaceful rally to negotiate action and protest the cruelty of refugees in detainment.
