Global Call to End Mandatory DetentionSunday, 29 March 2015 (All day)
All over the worldACT, New South Wales, Northern Territory, Western Australia, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and International
Each year thousands of people march in Australia on Palm Sunday calling for a more humane refugee policy. This year, these protests are international.
This is a call for Australian and allies around the world to organise vigils, protests or events globally, where ever you are in the world, calling for an end to mandatory detention of asylum seekers.
So far demonstrations, vigils, film screenings, honk-a-thons, discussion panels are happening all around Australia including (but not limited to): Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Canberra, Darwin, Hobart and Katherine (NT).
World wide (so far) actions are happening in 6 of the 7 continents: Africa, Asia, Australia/Oceania, Europe, North America, and South America.
Know anyone in Antarctica?
Even if it’s only you right now, make a Facebook event page for a date near the 29 March 2015 and plan to hold a vigil, a film night, a march, an art exhibition or some other event.
To meet others from around the world and share ideas, please join our Facebook group by the same name as our page: Australians and Allies Overseas Against Mandatory Detention.
