People Seeking Asylum Deserve Better Treatment

Venue: Redfern Community Centre (29-53 Hugo St. Redfern NSW 2016) 

A joint venture by Refugee Art Project and People Just Like Us; part of City of Sydney Council's Youth Week festival  

MC: Ben Doherty, journalist from The Guardian

Speakers:

Zaki Haidari, Hazara from Afghanistan

Dr. Tien Nguyen, Vietnamese refugee

Amir Javan, Iranian refugee

We are delighted to invite you to hear the personal stories and journeys of people who sought asylum in Australia. The event will also feature cultural performances; it will be a one-off variety evening centring around the experiences of refugees. 

This event serves as a call for unity and for positive action, as well as to change Australians' perspectives and attitudes toward people coming by boat to seek asylum. We encourage everyone to welcome them and to acknowledge the skills and energy they bring to this country.

Light Persian dinner will be provided after the Talks. This is an opportunity to keep the discussion going with the panelists and other audience members.
