‘Congratulations to the JCU student group SANTE for organising a Q&A style event on Tuesday evening. SANTE stands for Supporting All Nations Towards Equality and the group is based in the School of Medicine and Dentistry.
The Q&A was a lively event attended by more than 80 students and members of the public, and followed the format of its namesake on ABC TV. Thank you to Jenny Stirling for representing TMSG at this important event. It was encouraging to see so many people concerned about the current global crisis and questioning Australia’s policy on people who seek asylum. The four panelists were Dr Julie Mudd a Senior Lecturer at JCU, Dr Brian Senewiratne a consultant physician from Brisbane, Jenny Stirling a social worker with Townsville Multicultural Support Group and Federal MP Ewen Jones. Dr Farvardin Daliri, convened the panel.’
