This is a short post. Got to the Melbourne refugee rights rally a little late. Walked out of the Melbourne central train station to a vision of thousands of people crowding the State Library. A beautiful sea of people who were there to claim all of our rights to a better, more compassionate world. I am grateful to have walked amongst you that day. With people who believe that there must be a better way… that dumping refugees on our poor island neighbours and ignoring our international obligations, all for political point scoring… will never be ok.
Our mascot, Luca, was also quite popular with the papparazzi. #pawsforrefugeesWe took a few simple pics, and there are more from other folks here.
And this guy, ‘Abe Ape’ was great.
