5:30pm Fri 8 Dec | Evacuate Manus and Nauru: Paint the Town Refugee

When: 5:30-8:30pm Friday 8th December

Where: State Library of Victoria, 328 Swanston St, Melbourne

state library

Join a RAC working bee to cover the streets of Melbourne in posters, stickers, chalk stencils, banners, leaflets and more with the ‘welcome refugees’ and ‘bring them here’ message, and advertisements for the Human Rights Day refugee rally.

We’ll approach bars and cafes and cover bollards, poles and footpaths across the CBD, just as the “Yes” campaign did.

We will have plenty of materials, but feel free to bring your own material and ideas of optimal places for our message. We’ll work in groups, so it’s a good chance to meet other refugee activists on the night.

If your can’t get into the city, or you can’t wait til the date, feel free to hold a local “paint the town refugee” in your own suburb. Get in touch and we can supply you with materials. Post photos of your work here.
