Free the Refugees protest at perth detention centre

On the 27 of August, 10 years on from Tampa day, refugee activists in Perth, including Socialist Alliance and Resistance members. About 80 people came to the action and chanted azadi, freedom in farsi at the fence. The refugees could hear the chanting and chanted back, even with serco guards pushing them away from windows and the fence whilst police stood between activists and the fence.

The rally was demanding the end of mandatory dentition, the freedom of refugees and stopping the Malaysian "solution".

Here are some photos from the day
