Refugee Rally and March #BringThemHere
Rally - March from The Pinnacle bus terminus (near no. 291), along Edinburgh Rd to the Quadrangle Shopping Village - Oct 15th 10.30 am.
People Just Like Us is hosting a rally on Saturday morning (Oct 15) in Lower North Shore Sydney to demand immediately shutting down the offshore detention centres on Manus and Nauru, and bringing those indefinitely detained innocent refugees, including men, women and children, to Australia.
We will meet on 10:30am at The Pinnacle Bus Terminus in Castlecrag and march along Edinburgh Road to the Quadrangle Shopping Village. There will be three speeches in the courtyard of the shopping centre by Mark Crew from Castlecrag Progress Association, Dr Arthur Chesterfield-Evans from Australian Greens and Dr Anton Pulvirenti from PJLU.
It will be a peaceful silent walk and we will carry hand painted portraits of some of those people who have died in the past five years while seeking Australia's protection, who were detained and to whom Australia did not extend a duty of care.
Please join us wherever you live. The people stuck in the camps need your support.
