Educators for Refugees

On Palm Sunday, the AEU joined thousands of other Canberrans in saying refugees are welcome here. 

Canberra put on a massive show of support for decent and humane treatment of asylum seekers, including children.

As well as former Chief Minister, Jon Stanhope, the rally heard from Hazara refugee and former Dickson College student, Ismail Husseini, about his experience of coming to Australia.

In the wake of the rally, new ACT Senator, Katy Gallagher, declared she will be lobbying for a shift in ALP policy on refugees.
