The News and Updates: Sample newsletters

Samples of Project SafeCom's renowned News and Updates

Below are some of the Project SafeCom News and Updates newsletters. We have issued these well-known newsletters on a 'news-needs' basis, sometimes as a daily broadcast, since 2002.

Our News and Updates have kept hundreds of human rights advocates, refugee rights activists, lawyers, migration agents, politicians and many of our members and supporters informed about the state of affairs around Australia since the Tampa Affair in 2001. During 2017 we begun scaling down the activity, and we have now closed the list for new subscribers.
