Friday, July 22. 11.30am. Park Hyatt Hotel, 1 Parliament Square, off Parliament Place
This action has been cancelled due to Gillard postponing her speech.
Julia Gillard’s plan to ship asylum seekers to Malaysia as part of the so-called Malaysian “solution” is a direct attack on the right to seek asylum by any means necessary as guaranteed by international law. It is a further return to the dark days of John Howard and the pacific “solution.”
Speaking at the Park Hyatt on the 22nd of July, the Refugee Action Collective want to make sure Gillard can’t show her face in public in Melbourne without vocal and angry opposition to her attacks on the basic human rights of asylum seekers and refugees. Come to the Park Hyatt and voice your outrage.
