As parliament meets to debate offshore processing…

RALLY TO WELCOME REFUGEES

NO OFFSHORE PROCESSING: NOT MALAYSIA, NOT NAURU

1pm Sunday August 12, Sydney Town Hall

Tell Gillard and Abbott:
We want a full inquiry into all boat sinkings
End mandatory detention and free the refugees

Following the latest asylum seeker boat tragedies, there is a clamour for a solution to deaths at sea. But both political parties insist on proposing offshore processing to “stop the boats”. Labor simply prefers its Malaysia Agreement while the Coalition prefers re-opening Nauru. Gillard has so far failed to get Tony Abbott to agree to vote for new legislation to revive offshore processing. But she wants to try again when parliament resumes on August 14, and has set up an “expert committee” to propose a “solution”. This rally will be held just before parliament resumes. We need to raise our voices to say that any form of offshore processing is no solution, and that violating asylum seekers’ rights is not the way forward.
