Beat Back Abbott’s attacks!

The Refugee Action Collective (VIC) invites you to a:
Unionist and Refugee Activist Strategy Meeting

In the aftermath of the election of the Coalition government, the Refugee Action Collective is calling a strategy meeting of unionists and refugee activists.

The Coalition has put attacks on refugees at the front and centre of its policies – and is proposing to introduce a raft of draconian anti-refugee policies, in part as a diversion from the rest of its unpopular, and anti-union agenda.

The aim of the meeting is to have an initial discussion about how to build more effective networks between unionists and refugee activists, in order to build greater support for the refugee campaign.

Various unions and the ACTU already have come out in support of refugees. The challenge is to more actively mobilise union members within the refugee movement.
SPEAKERS:
– Kevin Bracken, MUA Victorian Branch Secretary
– Jeannie Rea, NTEU National President
Discussion on:
– Campaign priorities and strategies
– Building union rank and file networks of refugee supporters
