Asylum seekers second day of protest on Nauru

| March 21, 2016 | Reply

Asylum seekers on Nauru held a protest at the gates of the family compound, RPC 3, for the second day in a row, beginning at 5.00pm Nauru time.

Many of the asylum seekers are still waiting for answers to their refugee claims for more than two-and half years.

The Nauru protest began on Palm Sunday co-inciding with the Palm Sunday “Welcome Refugee” rallies calling for the closure of Manus Island and Nauru. The start of the protests also co-incided with the start of the Iranian new year – symbolically marking the beginning of yet another year in offshore detention.
