Join the Refugee Action Collective to call for a halt to the pending deportations of asylum seekers on Manus Island who have been given notice of their deportation following the rejection of their claims. We urgently need to be able to add them to a high court case in PNG to stop this, and call on the Australian government to only remove asylum seekers from the hell hole of Manus Island to bring them to the Australian mainland where they can be processed and resettled into the community. 5pm. City Square, Swanston St, City. Organised by Refugee Action Collective.

On September 20 Fatah and Hamas will jointly request the United Nations to recognise the State of Palestine. What are the priorities for solidarity activists?

How do we link to the solidarity movements in Egypt and Syria?.
