Grandmothers Against Detention of Refugee Children Protest, 28th August 2017
Against Detention of Refugee Children, La Trobe electorate are holding
a protest calling for the release of the 169 refugee children who are being
held both in Australia and on Nauru.
The existence of Labor For
Refugees within the ALP working to bring about a change in the ALP’s present
policies with respect to refugees gives them hope that, of the two major
parties, it might be the ALP which comes to its senses and adopts policies
which will bring an end to the current impasse over the treatment of the men,
women and children who have sought Australia’s help in resettling them in a
safe homeland. Grandmothers Against Detention of Refugee Children want to add
their voice to this group.
TIME: 12.00 Noon
LOCATION: Bill Shorten’s Maribyrnong Electorate Office, Suite 1A, 12 Hall Street Moonee Ponds.
