Photos: Adelaide Palm Sunday rally 2017

Thousands of people protested for refugee rights at Palm Sunday rallies in cities and rural towns across the country on April 9. The Adelaide rally incliuded speeches from a Hazara refugee and a mental health nurse who worked on Manus Island.

As refugees and asylum seekers endure their fourth year of detention in Nauru and Manus Island detention centres, rallies rejected the US refugee deal and called on the government to bring them here and give refugees permanent residency.
