Justice for Refugees SA, which is organising the event, said about 30,000 refugees were currently living on temporary visas, with their “futures in limbo”.

In promoting the walk, J4RSA said many families were separated by the “harsh system” and “people despair of ever being reunited”.

“Many lack access to education and citizenship and fear being deported to danger. Refugees on Manus and Nauru are approaching their fifth year languishing offshore.

”A majority of Australians are now opposed to the continuing detention of refugees on Manus and Nauru and believe they should be brought to Australia.”

The Walk for Justice for Refugees will start from Victoria Square at 2pm on Sunday March 25. It will proceed to Parliament House where guest speakers will address the gathering.
