After the announcement of Rudd’s PNG solution policy – a plan to send all refugee boat arrivals to PNG for processing and relocation – the Brisbane activist community responded with a snap rally in King George Square today. The rally will be followed with a protest at Rudd’s office Monday morning.
The rally attracted about 300 people and included speakers, entertainment and a march. Larissa Waters of The Greens spoke, followed by a range of speakers and music by Phil Monsour. Following this the group voted to march and set off down Adelaide Street, Edward Street, Charlotte Street, George Street and back down Adelaide.
Following are some inspiring pictures from the event.
