Sydney: Thousands attend Doctors for refugees march

News Sydney, Australia - 05 November 2016

Doctors for Refugees called on all Australian doctors and their supporters, specifically other health professionals and concerned citizens to march on November 5, 2016 in major Australian cities, like here in Sydney to demand humane treatment of asylum seekers and refugees. 

They are asking for the following: the end to the detention of children, the end to the mandatory, indefinite detention of asylum seekers, closure of the Australian detention camps which have been outsourced to Nauru and PNG, which deliver appalling living conditions at arms length in a dark regime beyond independent scrutiny, standards of medical care for asylum seekers comparable with those for the Australian public, independent oversight of healthcare and conditions for asylum seekers, repeal of Section 42 of the 2015 Border Force Act, which gags disclosures from the detention regime under threat of imprisonment.
