Say no to Rudd’s Indonesian Solution

November 2, 2009

Rally to welcome refugees
Say no to Rudd’s Indonesian Solution!
Let them land, let them stay!


12.30pm Monday 2 November. Immigration Department, Lee St (Railway Square end of Central Tunnel), City. 
Speakers include: Sylvia Hale (NSW Greens MP), Tamil Association, Ian Rintoul (Refugee Action Coalition). The bipartisan demonisation of asylum seekers has provoked feelings of deja vu among many people who thought we’d never again see Tampa-style dramas on the high seas. But as each day passes, it is becoming clear that Kevin Rudd’s ‘Indonesia Solution’ is every bit as inhumane (and expensive) as John Howard’s ‘Pacific Solution’. Despite the refugee rights movement winning victories such as children out of detention and the end of Temporary Protection Visas, it’s clear that we have a long way to go before Australia can claim it has humanitarian immigration and refugee policies.

Called by Refugee Action Coalition. Contact Ian on 0417 275 713
