People's Assembly in Canberra for Refugee Rights

Tuesday, September 28, 2010 - 12:30 to 14:00

The election is over and the real work of government is about to begin. This is an exciting time for a fresh start for our Federal government - a new way of doing things.

We are asking for you to join with us at a Peoples Assembly in Canberra at the opening of Parliament on Tuesday 28 September.

We will assemble on the lawns outside Parliament House to call on the new Parliament to introduce humane refugee policies and stop using refugees as political footballs. Refugee groups are asked to bring banners with the key messages of the gathering as well as their own messages.

This is a national convergence with buses coming up from Melbourne and Sydney.
