August 16, 2010

Socialist Alliance launch their campaign for the Federal seat of Gellibrand at Maribyrnong Detention Centre with candidate Ben Courtice and Senate candidate Margarita Windisch. In response to the scapegoating by the two major parties the Alliance argues that refugees and asylum seekers are not to blame for poor public transport, housing, unemployment.

As Minister for Health ALP incumbent in the seat of Gellibrand Nicola Roxon is responsible for the mental and physical impact of mandatory detention - especially children. Roxon needs to implement the ALPs 2007 election promise to get children out of detention.
