Join the Palm Sunday rallies for refugees on April 5 [Cancelled]

[Updated: These events have been cancelled due to COVID-19].

There are still 400 refugees and asylum seekers in Papua New Guinea and Nauru. With the US deal close to exhausted, those remaining have few hopes of resettlement. After almost seven years their situation is increasingly desperate.

Those in PNG have been moved into a vulnerable situation in the community where they are being forced into poverty. The shameful repeal of the Medevac Bill shows that the government is determined to continue its cruelty towards refugees.

There are also 1200 people from Nauru and Manus who have been transferred to Australia. Those brought under the Medevac process are being held in detention centres or hotels in Melbourne and Brisbane, in degrading conditions and without the medical treatment they need. We need to demand freedom and permanent protection for all of them.

Bring them here.

Join us to say yes to refugees
