For the past four years successive Australian governments have chosen to make people seeking safety suffer in offshore detention.
The US deal won’t provide safety for everyone. The men, women and children abandoned in offshore detention are in immediate danger with nowhere safe to go.
This is an urgent SOS. The camps must be evacuated immediately.
Vigils and events are taking place across the nation.
Hobart: Candlelit vigil at 6:00 p.m. on Parliament lawns, 1 Salamanca Place, Hobart. Organised in Hobart by the Tassie Nannas and the Amnesty International Refugee Rights Group Tasmania.
When: Wednesday 19 July 2017, 6pm
Where: Parliament House Lawns
Four years too many
