A National RAR protest was held on 21 July 2018.

Our Bellingen and Nambucca group conducted their protest in Coffs Harbour

Report on our protest rally
A huge thank you to all our supporters who turned out on Saturday to protest about our government’s cruel and inhumane asylum policy. About eighty people took part, and our banners and placards made a spectacular impact, as you can see on the attached photo. It was a very moving occasion, with people reading the biographies of the twelve men who have died on Manus and Nauru whilst in the care of our government. In addition, we had lots of people who came to the microphone to read poetry or to express their outrage at the current situation for asylum seekers and refugees, both in offshore detention and in our communities. What came across most strongly was our shared determination to keep up the fight for a more compassionate Australia, and to hold to account our politicians who seem to have lost their moral compass in their pursuit of votes.
We distributed more than two hundred leaflets, collected about a hundred signatures on our open letter, and signed up twelve new supporters.

Let’s continue to campaign together for a kinder Australia, and for an end to offshore detention.
