Let the stay rally Coffs harbour 7 February 2016

The sun came out on cue as just over two hundred supporters arrived from as far afield as Eungai Creek, Armidale and Grafton. Luke Wilton opened with an acknowledgement of the Gumbaynggir people. John Pollock addressed the crowd calling on the government to Let Them Stay and detailed the situation on Nauru that these people face if forcibly returned. John spoke about the offer of Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews to take care of these people and the response from Churches around the country who have offered sanctuary to these people should they wish to avail them selves of protection from the Australian government. 

Luke played several stirring songs and Michael Blockey an active GetUp member spoke as did John Courcier from the Coffs Harbour Greens. We got just over 100 signatures for our petition to Peter Dutton and raised $558 for Chilout. 

Journalist from the Coffs Coast ABC, NBN Television and The Coffs Coast Advocate gave us great coverage and the final photos of the crowd using the old Jetty as a backdrop was fantastic. Thanks to The Coffs Coast and MidNorth Coast Greens, Amnesty Coffs Harbour, March Australia Coffs Harbour and Dianne Rae and Luke Wilton for their support in organising this inspiring event.
