Feb 23rd, 7pm Forum: Sri Lanka is still not safe for Tamils

Monday 23rd Feb, 7pm, Australian Nurses Federation, 540 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne (opposite Vic Markets)

Speakers: Aran Mylvaganam and Trevor R. GrantTamil Refugee Council

Sri Lanka has a new leader now. Why is it still not safe for Tamils there? How important is it that we mobilise to stop Tamil asylum seekers from being deported? What happens to Tamil asylum seekers who get returned to Sri Lanka? If they are being returned to Sri Lanka, does that mean they were not genuine refugees anyway? What happened to the boat of 157 Tamil asylum seekers who were detained at sea? What will happen to the ASIO refugees given security clearance and released from detention after Morrison’s Migration Amendment Bill passed?

Understanding of the Tamil refugee struggle is central to the campaign for refugee rights in Australia. Join us to discuss the answers to these questions and more!
