Grandmothers Vigil at the State Labor Party Conference, Sydney Town Hall steps

Successive Australian governments have managed and funded the offshore processing regime and its detention camps on Manus Island in PNG and Nauru. The people who are detained there are clearly our responsibility. Four years after the Australian Government’s commencement of the offshore processing regime, it is unconscionable that children and adults continue to languish on PNG and Nauru. We are calling on both major parties to form a bipartisan commitment to immediately evacuate the offshore camps and bring these people to safety. The State Labor party is holding its annual conference on the weekend of the 29th & 30th July. Join Grandmothers in a vigil as delegates arrive for the conference.
