Manus & Nauru Briefing

- Community Announcement -

Saturday 29 September, 2.30 - 4.30 pm
Pilgrim Uniting Church Hall

The information session will provide updated news on the welfare of the children, men and women in limbo on Nauru, Manus Island and in PNG, and actions that can be taken in support. A number of members of the Adelaide Vigil group are deeply involved in providing material and personal support to people on Manus and Nauru. They work constantly to understand what is happening and often have more detailed and accurate knowledge than that provided in the media, and what is needed in response. There will be an opportunity for a Q&A in as much depth as time allows.

"Currently morale is extremely low on both islands, and both mental and physical health have been severely eroded after five years of indefinite detention in deliberately poor conditions. In the absence of any concrete plan for safe resettlement of all people, the level of mental and physical harm is escalating daily. It is a shocking and untenable situation, which deserves our full attention as witnesses and in calling for its end, and in the recognition of the crimes continuing to be perpetrated against innocent and defenceless people".

If you wish, you may make a donation to registered charity, Gifts For Manus and Nauru, and share some afternoon tea.

Organised by Adelaide Vigil for Manus & Nauru, www.adelaidevigil.com
