Join the Protest against the Closure of the Refugee Reception Center Maitland
A protest is being organized to protest the Department of Home Affairs’ (DHA) plan to close Refugee Reception Offices (RROs) in cities and move them to remote border posts. RROs provide essential services for refugees and asylum seekers. Moving them to distant border crossings will have devastating consequences on the rights of refugees and asylum seekers in South Africa. At the protest, we also hand-over a Memorandum of Grievances to the Honorable Speaker of Parliament.
When: Wednesday, 20 June 2012, at 11:00
Where: Opposite CPUT Cape Town Campus, Technicon (Cape Peninsula University of Technology) Keizergracht Street, Cape Town
Members and partners of several organizations are mobilizing refugees, asylum seekers, all non-nationals and South Africans—everyone fighting for human rights and justice—to join the protest. YOU will make a difference in this effort!
COME IN AFRICAN DRESS!
JOIN THE PROTEST IF YOU WANT:
1. Currently closed RROs to be reopened
2. To see government spending money to help South Africans and refugees alike rather than wasting funds opening RROs at the borders
3. The right for all living in South Africa to have access to documentation
4. To fight for human rights and justice for all people living in South Africa
