Palm Sunday 'Refugees are welcome here' Sydney Rally

 Belmore Park (opp. Central Station) march to Victoria park. This event endorsed by GADRC NSW. and will be attended by our group. Meet near the Eddy Ave entrance. 

There's a fair bit of despondency amongst members of refugee activist groups including a feeling that things are just not changing for refugees & asylum seekers.  Let's make the GADRC contingent at the Palm Sunday Rally the largest ever and demonstrate that we grandmothers will not give up.
