Palm Sunday Rally 9/4/17 (in photos)

Thousands of supporters of refugee rights came out in Sydney today to advocate for the closure of offshore detention centres. Marchers chanted “close the camps” and “refugees are welcome here” as they made their way from Archibald fountain in Hyde Park to the First Fleet park at Circular Quay.

This was just one of a series of rallies held all around the country.

Watch this space for video of the event later this week.
