Light The Dark

It was heart-warming to see so many Melburnians at the candlielight vigil in Fed Square on Sunday night. The vigils were held to remember the life of Reza Berati, a 23 year old asylum seeker who was killed inside the Manus Island detention centre, as well as to protest against the inhumane treatment of refugees by the Abbott Government.

The Greens oppose offshore processing of refugees and are calling for a Royal Commission into Reza's death, and for the closure of the Manus Island detention centre. I'm proud to stand with a party that stands for compassion, not cruelty.
