The 2013 federal election sees Abbott and Rudd competing over who can kick refugees the hardest. Rudd wants to dump asylum seekers on PNG, Abbott wants a military response. Rudd’s lurch to the right hasn’t ‘neutralised’ Abbott, it just pushes the debate further right still. How can we ditch failed Howard era policies and stop the scapegoating? How can we rebuild the refugee movement to win humane refugee policy? Come & discuss with candidates for the federal seat of Melbourne
