Less than a week to go until our chance to fight back against Ruddock himself, the architect of the Liberals' brutal attacks on refugees.
*PICKET RUDDOCK* Free the Refugees! 5PM, FRIDAY 31 MAY 2002 Institute of Public Affairs 410 Collins Street (between Queen and William Streets) Philip Ruddock (Minister of Immigration and Indigenous Affairs), Andrew Bolt (Herald Sun 'journalist'), and Bob Birrell (academic apologist for Ruddocks' attacks on refugee rights), will be speaking at a "Dialogue on Immigration" sponsored by the Institute of Public Affairs, a right-wing think tank. Ruddock is there to "separate some myths from reality". Bolt will talk about the pro-refugee campaign "tactics and attitudes", while Birrell will discuss "maintaining a distinctive and meaningful Australian identity." The ONLY purpose of the meeting is to justify continued attacks on refugee rights, and encourage racism and division in Australia. Shut down this racist meeting! Leaflets and posters for this event are available from the New International Bookstore in Trades Hall, cnr Lygon and Victoria Sts.
