March for Justice for Refugees
March 25, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm
The Freedom Socialist Party will join tens of thousands of people across the country for the annual Palm Sunday March for Justice for Refugees.
We have endorsed this rally which protests the Australian Government’s ongoing punishment of people seeking protection in Australia.
Our joint contingent will oppose the deeply racist dehumanisation of asylum-seekers. We’ll highlight it’s also sexist: 80 percent of refugees are women and children. The movement must address the tragic conditions that create refugees. Most are fleeing war or persecution. People escaping bloodshed and death are excluded, but big corporates are welcome. Capital is truly global, recognising no borders in its search for the cheapest labour and the greatest profits. Workers and the poor should have the same freedom of movement.
