RALLY TO MARK 150 DAYS AT MERAK FOR TAMIL REFUGEES

by refugeeactioncoalitionsydney

Welcome refugees
No Indonesian solution
Let the boats land in Australia

12.30pm Wednesday March 10
Kevin Rudd’s Sydney office, 70 Phillip st City

Two hundred and fifty Tamil refugees remain defiantly camped on their boat at the Indonesian port of Merak, holding out for a commitment from the Australian government that they will be resettled as refugees. They are there because of Kevin Rudd’s call to Indonesian president Yudhoyono asking him to intercept the boat. The refugees are Australia’s responsibility, as the only country in the region with the wealth and resources to resettle refugees. Join us to demand that Kevin Rudd act to offer them resettlement, as he did the Tamil refugees who were on the Oceanic Viking.
