Recently, the Australian government attempted to deport Afghan asylum seeker, Ismail Mirzajan, back to danger in Afghanistan. This despicable act has been postponed for a few months by a last-minute court injunction because of a problem with 'procedural fairness'. Come along to meet Ismail in Villawood Detention Centre, and show your solidarity with him and other asylum seekers who are locked up for no other reason than seeking safety from persecution.
Meet at Leightonfield train station at noon.

Simpson Park, St Peters.
Reclaim The Streets is a festival to take back control of our neighbourhood. The government is building a 6 lane super highway right to your front door. The NSW and Federal Government planned extension and duplication of the M5 tunnel to St Peters will spew tens of thousands of cars onto already gridlocked Inner West roads. Increased traffic will make it more dangerous for pedestrians, especially kids.

Australia is a country built on migration and we're in the 21st centuary, but we STILL see racist attitudes in our society, media and politicians. What the fuck! Why is it that race is still an issue? Who benefits from racism and why? Is there anything we can do to stop the hate? Come along to the first Resistance meeting in our NEW Resistance Centre- 22 Mountain St, Ultimo (Off Broadway). Come down for a coffee and chat. ALL WELCOME.

Everyone is welcome for this planning and working bee to help organise toward the May 6-8 Resistance National Conference, which will feature guests from the Middle East; Malaysia; New Zealand; and campaigns around Wikileaks; the environment; queer rights; Aboriginal justice; refugee rights and much more.
