10 Years Too Long
On Wednesday July 19 this year, it was the 10th anniversary of former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announcing that people arriving by boat, seeking asylum, will never be settled in Australia and be processed offshore. To commemorate this anniversary, Australian's are joining together and calling on the Albanese Government to bring the remaining 80 people in PNG to Australia
On the day of the anniversary Justice for Refugees Management Committee members and supporters went to the offices of the Hon Mark Butler and the Hon Amanda Rishworth calling for action, as well as personally delivering letters to many local Federal MPs and Senators offices.
