Join us, this Sunday for the annual Palm Sunday Rally, at Belmore Park.
This year we will stand with civil society and human right groups calling for Permanent Visa’s for all refugees and a universal Call for Peace.
The Albanese government has honoured its promise to give permanent visas to 19,000 refugees on Temporary Protection Visas (TPVs) and Safe Haven Enterprise Visas (SHEVs). This means that after ten years in limbo, they will have the right to travel, family reunion and a secure future.
But there are thousands of other refugees with no promise of permanent visas:
- 10,000 people rejected under the Coalition’s unfair fast track processing system, including many now threatened with deportation,
- 150 refugees still stranded on Nauru and PNG,
- 1,200 Medevac refugees and families from Nauru who are now in Australia but told they cannot stay in Australia. Many have already been here for five years or more and have partners, jobs and lives here; and
- 14,000 refugees still stuck in limbo in Indonesia.
The Palm Sunday Rally has long been part of CCL’s calendar and we hope to have a big turn out this year. Please join us to stand together and call on the government to Stand for Peace!
The rally commences at 2pm. We will meet at the bandstand to walk with our banner. T-shirts are now available. If you pre-order we will bring for collection on the day.
We hope to see you there!
