Palm Sunday has a long history as a day to stand up and challenge injustice.

This year that tradition continues as people around Australia come together on March 28 to demand Justice and a Fair Go For Refugees.

Justice and a Fair Go means:

  • Permanent visas and family reunion
  • Fair and timely assessment of all claims
  • Income support if unable to find employment
  • Releasing all refugees from indefinite detention
  • Ending offshore detention
  • Accepting New Zealand’s long standing offer to resettle refugees from Australia’s offshore detention regime
