ALHR fundraiser for Asylum Seekers’ Centre
Date: Thu 17th October 2013
Thanks to everyone who attend ALHR’s fundraiser for the Asylum Seekers’ Centre of NSW on 17 October. More than 120 people attended and we raised more than $3700 for the Asylum Seekers’ Centre. The panellists Prof Mary Crock (University of Sydney), Graham Thom (board member of Asylum Seekers’ Centre) and Natalie Young (RACS) spoke eloquently about the current situation for people seeking asylum in Australia, the film Nowhere Home was brilliant and harrowing and the Solidarity Choir serenaded guests with a stirring rendition of “Behind Barbed Wire”.
