Subject: Urgent Action For Manus Island Refugees This Sunday
Date: November 17th 2017
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
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!
