Stitched by: Jessica Liddle

Refugees are vulnerable people fleeing from terrible situations. They are children, fathers, aunts, grandmothers, neighbours, workers and they are all human. There is no giant refugee queue. They deserve the same rights as we all do.
The boat motif represents those coming to Australia by boat, often giving unscrupulous people all their money and risking their lives. On arrival they are locked up for years and declared “illegal”. The barbed wire border represents this incarceration. Australians need to know that their government is locking away our fellow humans when they have done nothing wrong.
