Public Meeting Tonight - Will Thousands of Refugees be Sent Back to Afghanistan?

The Refugee Action Collective is holding a public meeting tonight about the risk that thousands of refugees will be sent back to Afghanistan from Australia. The risk comes after a Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Australia, Afghanistan, and the United Nations High Commission for Refugees in January. A media release issued by the Australian Government in January said the Memorandum "paved the way for the return from Australia to Afghanistan of unsuccessful Afghan asylum seekers".

Speakers at the meeting will be immigration lawyer Sonia Caton, Dr Sarah Davies from Griffith University, and Hassan Ghulam, an Afghan community worker at the Romero Centre in Dutton Park.
