Ex-detainees? day for Asylum Seekers and Refugees, 3rd of September 2016.

“We refugees and asylum seekers need protection NOT detention”.

We, Ex-detainees at RISE in Australia, mark the 3rd of September as Ex-Detainees? Day for all Asylum Seekers and Refugees who have been forcefully detained whilst seeking protection. The 3rd of September will serve to commemorate and give a collective voice to Refugees and Asylum Seekers around the world who are facing discrimination and criminalisation due to detainment. Ex-detainees? day will be controlled and managed ONLY by ex-detainees to highlight and oppose all forms of Refugee and Asylum Seeker detention around the world : doesn’t matter if for 1 day or 30 days or 1 year or any other length of time.


More information coming soon.
