Six West Papuan’s who sought asylum in Australia have now been banished to the remote border East Awin refugee camp in PNG, in a cynical, cruel, inhumane and illegal move by the Australian Government to cover up persecution faced by West Papuans in Indonesia.
The Freedom Flotilla to West Papua, along with the West Papuan Melbourne Community and the Refugee Action Collective will demonstrate to demand the Australian Government respect its obligations under the Refugee Convention to process their claims for asylum.
The demonstration will also commemorate the 12th Anniversary of the Siev X tragedy on the 19th of October 2013 in which 353 people died seeking refuge in Australia.
An demonstration for refugees will also be held in Perth
on Friday and in Sydney
This demonstration is on Aboriginal land.
Following the demonstration join the Welcome home party
for the Freedom Flotilla at 8pm in Ovens St Brunswick.
