Close Manus, Close Nauru – Bring Them Here!
The Refugee Action Collective encourages you to vote for refugees, but more importantly get involved in the refugee rights movement. Whoever wins the election we will have a fight on our hands to Close Manus and Nauru and free the refugees. Help build that fight now: Come to our pre-election World Refugee Day rally Sat June 18. RAC meets every Monday 6.30pm at 540 Elizabeth St Melbourne, come along and get involved!
