Brisbane rallies to close Manus and Nauru detention centres

Issue 

3-400 people rallied and marched in Brisbane on October 11 calling for the closure of detention centres at Manus Island and Nauru.

One feature of the rally was the involvement of campaigners for freedom of Mojgan - a refugee who was pulled out of her secondary school class in December 2014 and put back in detention.

The rally was organised by the Refugee Action Collective.
