KIDS OUT OF DETENTION, NOT OUT OF CHILDCARE!
Friday, 1 May 2015, 9.30 am
St Andrew’s Church Parish Hall, 1560 Malvern Rd, Glen Iris (Morrison will be speaking from 10am – 11.30am)
As current Immigration Minister Peter Dutton makes moves to return a newborn baby, and a five year old girl with PTSD to Nauru, the former Immigration Minister Scott Morrison will be speaking at a Glen Iris childcare centre about his agenda for cuts to childcare rebates. Cuts will kick kids out of childcare.
As Immigration Minister Morrison presided over a detention regime which oversaw very high levels of self-harm and mental distress for children in detention. The Forgotten Children report says “The Department of Immigration and Border Protection confirmed that during a 15 month period from January 2013 to March 2014, 128 children in detention engaged in actual self-harm. One hundred and seventy-one children threatened self-harm”. In addition 33 sexual assaults involving children took place in this period.
Scott Morrison is not someone who can be trusted with children. His new agenda for childcare shows that his cruelty does not stop at the border. All kids deserve quality childcare – and FREEDOM!
Join the protest calling for “Kids out of detention, not out of childcare!”
