People Seeking Asylum Deserve Better Treatment

Time: Wednesday (March 2) 6pm for 6:30pm start

Venue: Customs House (31 Alferd St. Circular Quay, Sydney NSW 2000) 

A joint venture by Refugee Art Project and People Just Like Us; part of City of Sydney Council's "Living in Harmony" Festival 

MC: Charles Firth from The Chaser

Speakers:

Amir Javan, Iranian refugee 

Hani Abdile, Somali 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.
