#EvacuateNow, Four years too many - Newcastle Vigil

For the past four years successive Australian governments have chosen to make people seeking safety suffer in offshore detention.

The US deal won't provide safety for everyone. The men, women and children abandoned in offshore detention are in immediate danger with nowhere safe to go.
This is an urgent SOS. The camps must be evacuated immediately. Late news:
please go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/hunterasylumseekeradvocacy/ at the vigil. The fb banner incorporates an image, and the accompanying post includes a statement, by an architect imprisoned on Nauru. We don't know her name. But we will read her statement, and ask you to look at the picture she made.
