Have your say at Capricorn Coast Amnesty campaign launch

PUTTING an end to offshore detention is the Amnesty International Capricorn Coast Group main goal when they host a campaign launch on Saturday.

The group will host a wine and cheese night to launch their mission calling to shut down offshore detention centres.

The group said they had been shaken from dormancy by the seemingly constant stream of news about the abuse of refugees in Australian offshore detention centres.

They have been buoyed by enthusiastic supporters and volunteers and aim to have fun while creating awareness about the issue wand also giving people an opportunity to speak out.

All members of the community are encouraged to come and show their support and learn more about what is happening at the free public event.

There will be live music, craft materials for making campaign art and a guest speaker.

MORE INFO

The event will be held on Saturday, November 14, at 5pm at the Queen St Community Hall.
