Refugees

More than 200 detainees at detention centres in Villawood in Sydney and Maribyrnong in Melbourne, were on hunger strike for five days from January 15–19 in protest at visitor restrictions announced by Border Force.

Beginning January 22, visitors will have to give five days’ notice of any visit and fill in a five-page form, with actual visits restricted to one-on-one.

Visitors will be required to provide 100 points of identification.

The Manus Island mess continues. The refugees and asylum seekers, who are clearly Australia’s responsibility, continue to live in fear and insecurity. This is a disgrace.

You are invited to join the ARAR walkaround protest on Thurdsay morning from 9.15am to 9.45am. Just for half an hour.

Meet at the Dangar Street end of the Mall, outside the New England Hotel. There will be signs to carry (or bring your own) and we’ll walk through the Mall and then around other shopping places.

Monthly meeting at 5:15pm on the third Wednesday of the month in the Garden Room at Kent House, 141 Faulkner Street Armidale, NSW, 2350.
