Volunteers needed for Refugee Rally

Calling for Volunteers - Come along and help us at the public rally against the recent government’s asylum suspension policy!

The Australian Government has announced a freeze on Asylum Seeker applications from Sri Lanka and Afghanistan. This decision violates Australia’s international obligation under the Refugee Convention. Amnesty International is organising a massive public protest and day of solidarity and is calling volunteers to help on the day (May 8th) and the week prior to the event. Volunteers will be responsible for postering and flyering in the community prior to the event as well as helping out on the day.

There will be a briefing night where we will give further information about the campaign and the plans for the day of solidarity. The details for the briefing will be sent to you once you register to volunteer.

If you would like to volunteer send us an email to with your name, phone number and availability.
