After the speeches the students, health care staff and members of the public  will walk around Hyde Park. We will then catch the ferry to Cockatoo Island to visit the Ai Wei-Wei installation of a boat full of refugees. Those present will have their photo taken holding their arms out in welcome to the Ai Wei-Wei refugees. The media have been invited to take photos and report on the event.  

Some of our members may only want to attend the rally & that's fine.  Coordinator for GADRC: Gaby; grandmothersrefsyd@gmail.com
