Between 150-200 people (maybe more) took part in an "exercise for refugees" solidarity action on May 29 in Brisbane, outside the Kangaroo Point detention facility. It was the seventh week of the Friday afternoon actions, and the biggest yet.
The refugees had made a huge new banner which read: "Where is Justice". Many have been in detention for seven years.
One wore a T-shirt with the words "I can't breathe", while carrying a sign saying "Black Lives Matter" in solidarity with the movement in the United States. The action concluded with a candle light vigil and the important message: "We'll be Back".
Home affairs minister Peter Dutton could allow these people out of detention with the stroke of a pen. This injustice has to end.
