Convergence to Northam for refugee rights

On Sunday 26th of August, Refugee Rights Action Network will be converging on the recently opened Northam Detention Centre (at Yongah Hill) to protest against mandatory detention of refugees.

Given the recent (disgraceful) adoption of the lethal and unjust "Pacific Solution" by the federal Labor government, there couldn't be a better time to show your support for justice for refugees.

The convergence is gathering a lot of support (four buses have been booked) but it is not too late to come along and get on board.

The convergence will depart from East Perth train station on Sunday 26 August at 10am.

Please register in advance and if possible pay the bus fee of $20 solidarity, $15 waged, $10 concession in advance (but paying on the day is also possible).

(Some people will be self-driving as well.)

Take this opportunity to support refugee rights.
