Palm Sunday Rally Sydney
14 Apr 2019
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
March with us again this year for the annual Palm Sunday Rally for refugees and people seeking asylum on Sunday 14th April.
Events are taking place in all major capital cities and some regional areas around Australia and with the Federal Election just a few months away, we’re hoping to make it bigger than ever in 2019!
We are calling on all Uniting Church members & Uniting staff to take part and march together to demonstrate the Church’s commitment to the rights and protection of refugees and people seeking asylum!
We are supportive of fair, humane and compassionate policies and think we CAN do better for people who seek safety here.
Speakers at the Sydney event will include renowned orthopaedic surgeon and former Iraqi refugee, Dr Munjed Al Muderis, and Fr Clement Taulaum, a parish priest from Papua New Guinea who has worked closely with detained refugees. Also speaking is retired football player and sports broadcaster, Craig Foster, who was integral in campaigning for the release of Australian refugee footballer Hakeem al-Araibi recently.
