Rally for an Australian Iraq War Inquiry.
The decision to go to Iraq was taken against the clear will of the Australian people. Since then, the death tolls have topped 1,000,000 and chaos has gripped the entire region. Those who opposed the war were right in their political and moral instincts. To go to war so needlessly has left a festering wound of cynicism in the Australian psyche.
The Chilcot Report released in the UK adds official weight to the demand that we forget how much destruction has been reaped, and to ensure it never happens again.

We cant let the government's disgusting new policy on refugees and asylum seekers carry on without protest!
Recently refugees from Sri Lanka have been the first to be 'Off-shored' to Nauru, and even more have been sent back to danger in Sri Lanka because they refused to be sent to Nauru. These people should be welcomed in Australia with open arms!
The Australian government is engaged in a chess-board game in the south pacific, shunting desperate people around as it sees fit.
The vile bigots of Reclaim Australia have called another rally. We sent them home with their tails between their legs last time, let's repeat that victory!
The Reclaim rallies have been created, and boosted, by the racist climate in Australia, where both the government and opposition agree on locking up refugees, bombing Syria, and pushing Islamophobia. These ideas can't go unchallenged. These rallies can't go ahead without a strong presence of anti-racists showing that we disagree with the politics of racism, and we disagree with Reclaim.
