Join the ASC at a pre-election rally

March 30, 2022

Show your support for refugees and asylum seekers and make your voice heard ahead of the federal election. 

Walk alongside people seeking asylum, refugees, and ASC volunteers and supporters on Sunday April 10, at the Palm Sunday Rally for Refugees.

With a federal election looming, we need you to show all sides of politics there’s widespread community support for a more compassionate and generous refugee policy for Australia. A strong turnout will show our political leaders that Australians welcome refugees, and want those already here to have equal rights including access to education and Medicare, and the right to live and work safely in the community.

We need you to speak up for fair refugee policies before the federal election, and to be a voice for refugees and asylum seekers who do not have a vote.

When and where: 

  • 2pm Sunday 10 April, 2022 (meet from 1:30pm)
  • Belmore Park, Haymarket (next to Central Station)
  • We’ll gather in the park from 1:30pm at the rotunda. Look for the ASC banner.

Bring: Your own sign, the ASC will provide stickers and flyers to distribute on the day.

Wear: Anything blue, your ASC t-shirt, or you can buy a new ASC t-shirt or tote bag here.

Covid-safety: wearing masks is recommended by rally organisers and we’ll have masks and hand sanitizer available.
