A/ Expose Australia’s racist laws against asylum seekers and refugees
- 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)
- People in community on bridging visas without the right to work (which apparently is the theme for this year).
- Mandatory & indefinite detention onshore & offshore
- PNG solution
- 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.
