1. Help RAC leaflet in the city for Palm Sunday
Following the highly successful baby Asha vigil, public opinion is beginning to shift our way. It's important we stay on the front foot and push for a big roll up to the Palm Sunday rallies on March 20th. RAC is asking people to get active in their workplace, class or community to urge their colleagues to be there, but we are also planning to leaflet railway stations in the city. We plan to make a splash and will be there with our signs, petitions and leaflets. Please come and help.
Wed 9th March: 7.30am to 9am (gathering on the corner of corner of Ann and Edward)
Thursday 10th March: 4.30pm to 6pm (gathering on the corner of Adelaide and Edward)
Wed 16th March: 7.30am to 9am (gathering on the corner of corner of Ann and Edward)

If enough people come we'll branch out to other other train and bus stations.

2. RAC organising meeting
When & where:
6.30pm, Wednesday 9th March, at 2nd floor, TLC Building, 16 Peel St, South Brisbane.
Parking on site. Close to Cultural Centre bus station, South Brisbane railway station, South Bank City Cat.
We will be putting the final touches on the planning of the Palm Sunday rally of 20th March, together with members of Just Peace Qld. We will organise a leafletting exercise in the city to publicise the Palm Sunday rally. We will start the planning of a public meeting at which detention whistleblowers will be invited to speak. If there is sufficient time left there are some internal "housekeeping" issues that need to be resolved.
