Refugees and people seeking asylum have been locked up in detention by Scott Morrison and Peter Dutton for far too long. Right now, more than 1400 men, women and children are being detained by the government. Some people have been detained for up to 10 years.
Enough is enough. It's time we act together. Let's spread the word into the community that we support the rights of people seeking asylum and refugees to be free. Let's raise our collective voice and demand their release from immigration detention. Now is the time to add your voice.
Sign up and join thousands of community members at the Freedom From Detention online rally. This event will be held via Zoom so make sure you download the free Zoom app. We will also broadcast it to Facebook Live.
When: Thursday, 2 July 2020 from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm AEST
