Villawood Detention Centre Protest Easter 2006: April 14-17

Activists from across Australia will converge on Villawood Detention Centre in SW Sydney to collectively voice our opposition to the Howard government's treatment of refugees.

Inspired by previous Easter convergences at Woomera and Baxter, this year we turn our sights on Villawood, where a majority of refugees are now incarcerated: at January 6, there were 263 detainees, 143 of them Chinese. The high rejection rate of Chinese asylum seekers by the RRT (89.6% in 2004-05) is significant, especially with free trade negotiations in train.


V06 call to action: Why converge on Villawood?
