As the treatment of asylum seekers by the new Government sinks to ever lower depths, many of us have felt a growing sense of despair.

Join us to learn about concrete actions you can take to support asylum seekers in the community and start changing the national conversation to one of compassion and hospitality.

Public forum with Angeline Loh, Malaysian Human rights activist, and Nick Riemer, Refugee Action Coalition.

Loh’s writings played a critical role in exposing the horrible plight of the nearly 100,000 refugees trapped in Malaysia, the country that Australia wants to deport desperate asylum seekers to. After a recent High Court decision cast doubt on all offshore processing, the Gillard government now plans to change the Immigration Act in order to circumvent the ruling.

Saturday October 6, 2pm. Sydney Town Hall.

Over two years ago WikiLeaks released the Afghan War Diary, an extraordinary compendium of over 91,000 reports covering the war in Afghanistan from 2004 to 2010. Now, at the 11th anniversary of the war, both WikiLeaks and Julian Assange remain under attack for daring to reveal the truth about the bloodshed in Afghanistan as well as in other conflicts around the globe. Join us to demand safe passage for Assange, an end to the witchhunt against WikiLeaks, and an end to the “war on terror”. 11 years too long: troops out of Afghanistan NOW.
