Forum on Iraqi refugees

Tonight I’m speaking at this Refugee Action Collective forum on the plight of Iraqi refugees seeking asylum in Australia.

The government and coalition have passed motions calling for an end to the genocide of minorities in Iraq and yet they are refusing to back Greens’ attempts to introduce a moratorium on deportations of asylum seekers and to restore Australia’s humanitarian intake to 20,000.
