Are you concerned about the refugees imprisoned on Manus and Nauru?

Join us for a weekly vigil to help raise awareness of their plight.

We're back at parliament house from 4.30 to 5.30pm. Then walking to the southern end of the footbridge to hand out flyers to those going to the big bash finals.
It will be great if you can join us in getting information about what's happening on Manus and Nauru out there.

Location: Adelaide Activist Centre, Room 205, Level 2, 95 Currie Street, Adelaide

Over the past few months, activists from Socialist Alliance, Left Unity, and other groups have been raising awareness and concerns about the Federal Government's Income Management policies, which are currently being "trialled" in Playford, northern Adelaide.

They have organised two community meetings on the issue, and have been engaging with community and welfare groups in the area, and elsewhere.

Migrants, especially newly-arrived ones, have always been more at-risk of experiencing poverty, and more at-risk of being exploited as workers and students.

But cuts from April 1st to a federal government program that provides an allowance, casework support, housing assistance, and counselling to potential refugees, could mean homelessness and destitution for some of the most disadvantaged people in Australia.
