***********************************************
Borders are constructed to keep out or keep in. They define people, place
and activity. Operation Sovereign Borders has become a defining border
security operation for Australia. This affirmation-at-all-costs of
Australia¹s borders redefines the edges of our land and the limits of our
care for humanity and those seeking refuge.

The Walking Borders project is to be enacted during the gathering of the
G20 in Brisbane, to advocate for the rights of refugees and asylum seekers.

All peoples have a right to seek protection under international law.

There is a growing groundswell of disbelief and shame toward the
Australian Government¹s current response, which ignores or silences any
form of dissent or opposition.
