Palms for peace and justice

The Palm Sunday Walk for Justice for Refugees was held in locations all over the country by people wanting a better approach to Australia’s response to asylum seekers and refugees. In Perth, the event began at St George’s Cathedral with speakers, poetry and engaging testimonials. The walk was led by faith groups, holding palms as a symbol of peace, who sang and chanted through the streets of Perth.

A Palm Sunday Walk was also held in Margaret River at Prevelly Beach, well attended by Margaret River Uniting Church. Attendees laid white flowers in the ocean, in remembrance of people who had lost their lives at sea while searching for a safe place to call home.
