Rally LOUDER for refugees: Sat 3 Aug

After an excellent turnout at Saturday's rally it was decided to continue the pressure on the government and the Coalition. In the lead-up to the election it is critical that we maintain the momentum and express our outrage through further protests.

The government has increased the vilification of refugees with an advertising blitz worth millions of dollars. They have so much blood on their hands. It was revealed this week that rescue attempts of refugees in distress at sea were deliberately delayed. Meanwhile thousands languish in detention centres until their spirit is crushed. We can't allow this to continue.

Lets ensure that off-loading the worlds most vulnerable people offshore in detention centres in Papua New Guinea - one of the poorest nations in the region and the world is not an option.

Rally again to show your opposition to the current policy and to help win a policy of closing all detention centres and welcoming refugees.
