Teachers say #letthemstay!
When: 10-11 February
Where: Your school
It’s time for teachers and educators to add our voices to the campaign demanding the 267 refugees from Nauru be allowed to stay in Australia.
On Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th of Feb, gather a group of colleagues together and take a group photo with signs saying “Let them stay- education not detention”. Post the photos with the hash tag#letthemstay and #standforsanctuary to social media. Post to the facebook event page too: https://www.facebook.com/events/650727905065140/
There are kids in our schools who are terrified that they will soon be sent back to Nauru, where school is not safe, abuse is rife, and there is no future.
Churches have declared sanctuary for refugees, and teachers now need to declare that we stand for sanctuary too.
