Big Walk4Refugees

Excerpt

- a solidarity action with the 10,000 people still in visas limbo - after 10 years on ‘Fast Track’

The Big Walk 4 Refugees is a virtual walk of 16,650 km all around Australia so that people in all states and territories can show their active support for refugees, and particularly the 10,000 refugees who have been living in Australia for 10 years and are part of the community, but still remain in limbo because they do not have permanent visas. The Big Walk is inspired by the courageous journeys of asylum seekers who walked and cycled thousands of kilometres in 2023 to highlight the devastating impacts of uncertainty for refugees and asylum seekers who do not have permanent visas.

Anyone can register and contribute as an individual - the kilometres that you walk, run, swim and cycle locally count towards total virtual progress of the walk ‘around Australia’.   The walk will culminate in Canberra with a delegation to Parliament on Tuesday 26 March.  

You can participate as an individual - just join a team and get active, or you can organize a team of your own and get others to support this initiative with you.  Community walks will help to raise awareness of this important issue.  

Although you can join any team you like, QRAR has set up a team called Team Queenscliff and it would be lovely to have you in our team. So when you register look out for Team Queenscliff and click on join.
