SNAP RALLY TO PROTEST THE RETURN OF 267 ASYLUM SEEKER TO NAURU

Supporters of Great Lakes Rural Australians for Refugees and concerned residents of the area rallied in the Memorial Park Tuncurry on Monday morning the 8th February to protest the Australians Government’s proposal to return 267 men. women and children including 37 babies, back to detention on Nauru.

Many of these asylum seekers have be brought to Australia for medical treatment and some of the babies were born here.

The lack of compassion for the plight of asylum seekers by administering such a harsh, vindictive policy in order to deter them from attempting to come to Australia by boat was condemed by all at the rally.
