Passop picket for papers

Today refugee advocacy group People Against Suffering Oppression and Poverty (Passop) held a picket outside the Maitland Refugee Reception Centre. They were protesting against the ill-treatment of asylum seekers, the poor services at the centre and the impending closure of the facility. Meanwhile, the Maitland Sector Forum as well as the Maitland Ratepayers and Residents Association held their own picket on the opposite side of the road.
