Chasing Asylum Screening

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Wed 24 Oct ’18, 3:30pm – 5:30pm


Tawa Recreation Centre, Duncan Street, Tawa, Wellington



Ticket Information:

  • Gold coin donation: $2.00
  • Gold coin donation: $1.00

Please join Tawa College's Amnesty International group for a screening of Chasing Asylum and learn about Australia's appalling Pacific Solution policy which results in refugees and asylum seekers who arrive by boat being processed in offshore detention centres and indefinitely detained in cruel conditions.

After the screening you’ll get a chance to help prevent more refugees and asylum seekers from ending up in these inhumane detention centres by signing the pledge to make New Zealand’s Community Sponsorship programme a permanent one.

This programme allows community groups and members to sponsor refugees to live in our country and to become self-sufficient. By signing this pledge you’ll help the refugee crisis by providing more refugees a safe place to rebuild their lives and prevent them from ending up in these cruel detention centres.

Guest speaker: Mo Farrell who will talk about how the recently resettled refugees are doing.

Entry: Gold coin donation which will go directly to helping make the Community Sponsorship programme a permanent one.

Food and drink will be provided.
