Illawarra Activists to Call for Action During Online Refugee Week Events

Australia: Refugee Action Collective Illawarra (RACI) is going online to highlight the alarming plight of asylum seekers and refugees in detention during the COVID-19 crisis and call for action. The online event protests against the Federal Government, who are rejecting calls for temporary visa holders to receive income support. Protestors believe this will lead to a sharp decline in living conditions and prospects of support.
