Palm Sunday rallies

Justice and a Fair Go for Refugees 

Palm Sunday (March 28) is an important opportunity to raise awareness of the continuing injustice and cruelty experienced by refugees and people who are seeking asylum.  This year Palm Sunday actions are calling for: 

  • Permanent visas for all refugees 
  • Basic income support for people in the community while their refugee status is assessed
  • Release of ALL Refugees from detention #TimeForAHome
  • An end to offshore processing  #GameOver

You can support Palm Sunday by:

  • attending an action on Palm Sunday  – these will be organised to be Covid-safe.  
  • remember refugees in your service on Palm Sunday.  Some churches are planning to ring their bells !  Let us know if you will ring your bells by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
