People Seeking Asylum Deserve Better Treatment

Time: Wednesday (April 6) 10 am for 10:30am start

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

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

MC: John Highfield, former journalist at ABC

Speakers:

Mohsen Soltany Zand, Iranian refugee 

Gladys Amal, South Sudanese refugee

Reverend John Jegasothy, Tamil from Sri Lanka

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 morning 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.

Morning tea and light lunch will be provided both before and after the Talks. This is an opportunity to keep the discussion going with the panelists and other audience members.

Free events, Donations at the door, RSVP ESSENTIAL
