About 100 refugees and supporters gathered outside Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s electoral office in Marrickville on February 4, to call for permanent protection for all refugees.
Speakers condemned the government’s inhumane treatment of people seeking asylum.
Labor promised last year to end the cruel temporary protection visa scheme, but it has not given refugees any indication or timeline of when this might happen.
Labor also continues to support boat turn backs and offshore detention.
