Protest: Close MITA Free the refugees and 501s

Actions, protests & rallies


2:00pm to 4:00pm Saturday 01 October


MITA detention centre
120 Camp Road
Broadmeadows VIC 3047


Join RAC to protest the continued indefinite detention of refugees and 501s (people in detention who have had their visas cancelled).

The Liberals were forced to close some hotel detention centres. Now Labor must end the cruel and indefinite detention of refugees across all onshore and offshore detention camps.

In MITA, in Broadmeadows, some refugees have been detained 10 years. One man was denied refugee status because he was told Afghanistan is safe to return to! People face deportation to countries they have not been in since infancy.

Speakers and further details TBA. Contact Lucy 0404728104 or connect on Facebook.
