REFUGEE WEEK - Melbourne
March for Justice for Refugees - 22June'14
5 ... Pastor Tri Nguyen - Tri walked for 35 days from Melbourne to Canberra, towing a large wooden replica of the boat in which he & his family fled from Vietnam in 1980. Thanks to former Prime minister Malcolm Fraser, he & his family were given asylum.
Tri did the walk as a "quiet protest" on behalf of current asylum seekers. He presented his boat to Parliamentarians as a "thank you" to Australia for the refuge he & his family were given.
