#LetThemStay – Sanctuary for the 267 Asylum Seekers

The Canberra Times published an article today on the action being taken by the wider Church community to offer sanctuary for the 267 asylum seekers which have been affected by the recent High Court decision.

This week the President of the Uniting Church, Stuart McMillan, called on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to intervene directly to prevent the return of 267 asylum seekers, including 37 babies, back to Nauru.

The President also addressed a #LetThemStay rally on the steps of the South Australian parliament on Thursday night, appealing to Mr Turnbull to show leadership and compassion.

If compassion is not forthcoming, congregations across the country are prepared to offer sanctuary as Rev. Elenie Poulos of UnitingJustice Australia explains in this video.
