Was this the last refugee rights protest outside Dutton's office?

Issue 

The Refugee Action Collective (RAC) got a good response from passers-by at the pre-election rally for refugee rights outside Peter Dutton's office on May 11.

Activists are hoping to see the end of the Morrison government and possibly the loss of Dutton's seat at the May 18 election.

Nevertheless, whoever wins the election, RAC is organising another protest on July 19 — six years after the Rudd Labor government announced that from that point on all refugees who arrived by boat would be sent to offshore detention.

RAC's Mark Gillespie said that the movement needs to continue to press its demands for refugee rights no matter which party forms government.
