Newsletter for 12 August Rural Australians for Refugees Bellingen and Nambucca Districts

Next market stall will be at Bellingen Market on Saturday 16th July.
Popup demonstrations
National RAR conference
Our RAR stall at Bellingen Market on Saturday 16th July

A reminder that we we be at the Bellingen market on Saturday with our usual colourful stall, information leaflets and merchandise. We will also have a new petition for supporters to sign. The petition calls on leaders of all parties in the new parliament to work together to end the shameful, inhumane and unlawful policy of detaining people indefinitely on remote offshore islands. We hope to get the support of other RAR groups around Australia to promote the petition.
If you can offer an hour or two to help John and Mike with the stall, then please email Mike at: If you are not able to help, just drop by for a chat and sign the petition.  You will find our stall  next to the scoreboard. (F 9).
Pop-up Demonstrations 

Now that the election is finally behind us, we are planning to resume our pop-up demonstrations  quite soon. At the moment we are in the midst of creating a large banner ( 3 metres by 1 metre), which will be much easier for passing motorists to read. It’s quite a challenge, but we are getting there! Look out for further details in next week’s Newsletter.
