“20 years working for your rights”…looks as though they haven’t done a good job. Things have got worse in the last 20 yrs with the highest number of refugees this year since 19 yrs ago!

A/ Expose Australia’s racist laws against asylum seekers and refugees

  1. Highlight Fact that the UN says Australia has violated about 150 UN laws while detaining refugees with adverse ASIO assessments but no action (http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/federal-election-2013/australia-violated-refugees-human-rights-un-says-20130822-2sdxq.html)
  2. People in community on bridging visas without the right to work (which apparently is the theme for this year).
  3. Mandatory & indefinite detention onshore & offshore
  4. PNG solution
  5. Any other facts you think are important (latest stats on immigration detention may be useful: http://www.immi.gov.au/managing-australias-borders/detention/_pdf/immigration-detention-statistics-oct2013.pdf) note if you look through the stats you will see, most in detention are refugees & asylum seekers who arrived by boat and are people of colour.

B/ Expose Australia’s racist laws against indigenous people

Particularly suspension of racial discrimination act for another 10 years by Julia Gillard with bipartisan support :http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/senate-approves-aboriginal-intervention-by-10-years/story-fn59niix-1226411713571

Anything else you would like to add about racial discrimination & human rights abuses in Australia.

Remember you can do this in the afternoon & evening/night etc when most of Asia, Europe and North America is up.
