Vigil for Manus this Friday 10 Nov 6.30pm to 7.30pm Gosford Waterfront

Grandmothers will be amongst those attending.   Father Rod will be speaking and a previous worker on Manus. Come and stand together for the men on Manus Island Detention Centre. Bring a sign/banner/candle and join with your local community in saying#BringThemHere. The Centre was closed days ago on 31 Oct and 606 men are refusing to leave as they fear for their safety. We know there have been six deaths of asylum seekers on Manus to date- their fears are well founded. New Zealand Minister has offered to take 150 asylum seekers, again our government says 'no'. We need to keep standing together. Australia we are better than this- let us not use people as politics.
