Manus refugees still stranded in PNG
6pm next Monday 2 March
NSW Teachers Federation, 23-33 Mary St Surry Hills

There are still 400 refugees and asylum seekers in PNG and Nauru. With the US deal close to exhausted, those remaining have few hopes of resettlement. Those in PNG have been moved into a vulnerable situation in the community where they are being forced into poverty. Join us to hear first hand accounts about the situation and discuss why we need to keep fighting to Bring Them Here.

Fr Giorgio Licini (via Skype)

Giorgio is a Catholic priest in Port Moresby who is assisting refugees brought from Manus. He helped advocate for those thrown in the Bomana prison and will give a first hand account and update on the situation they face now. He has spoken out calling for their resettlement and exposed the appalling conditions they face in numerous media interviews including in The Saturday Paper, Radio NZ and elsewhere.
