Urgent Action for Manus Island refugees - Sunday 19 November, 1pm @ Aotea Square

 

Jacinda Ardern announced today that it could take up to 5 months to come to a deal with Australia to take 150 of the 600 men stranded on Manus - whilst the Australian government has effectively abandoned them, demolishing parts of the detention center and cutting off water, power and food supplies in a situation the UNHCR describes as "desperate".

 

We demand that our new government negotiates directly with the Papua New Guinea government to BRING THEM HERE.

 

Please join us on Sunday @ 1pm at Aotea Square & let's lift our voices for peace & justice. Please share the Facebook event with your friends & family.

 

Can't make it on Sunday?

There is plenty you can do. Here are four ways you can take action on this urgent issue: 


1: Sign & share the petition demanding the NZ Government #BringThemHere on Facebook or Twitter, and forward this email to a friend.

 

2: Tweet at our PM @jacindaardern and/or Immigration Minister @IainLG and/or @TurnbullMalcolm - here are a couple of suggested tweets:

 

Hundreds of refugees on Manus in desperate situation. @TurnbullMalcolm needs to evacuate now. We need to bring them here @jacindaardern @iainLG

 

Refugees on Manus Island in danger as detention centre shuts. We need to urgently #BringThemHere! #RefugeesWelcome @jacindaardern @IainLG @TurnbullMalcolm

 

3: Call or email your MP, Jacinda Ardern and Iain Lees-Galloway directly: jacinda.ardern@parliament.govt.nz / 04 817 9370 & iain.lees-galloway@parliament.govt.nz / 04 817 6967

 

4: Send a message of solidarity directly to refugees on Manus & let them know we stand with them and want them here. Iranian journalist Behrouz Boochani is being held on Manus & is reporting the situation there - tweet at him @BehrouzBoochani or use #BringThemHere

 

Thanks for taking action today!
