Manus issue: Hundreds to rally in Sydney

Similar rallies are being held in Brisbane and Melbourne as thousands of people stand in solidarity with the refugees.  

According to the Refugee Action Coalition, authorities began removing the perimeter fencing of the detention centre late yesterday afternoon (Thursday 9 Nov), leaving the refugees even more vulnerable.

“Overnight a new notice was distributed in Port Moresby, where over 120 Manus refugees and asylum seekers being held, has made it obvious there are no plans for providing permanent resettlement,” says spokesman Ian Rintoul.
