Real Australians Say Welcome

Peter Drew is an artist from South Australia. He has engaged in a social media campaign titled Real Australians Say welcome aimed at the political views surrounding refugees who come to Australia by boat.

As the campaign suggest Real Australians Say Welcome is just that, we welcome anyone who comes to our country seeking refuge. In more recent times Drew says his campaign can be related to those Aboriginal people who are seeking refuge on Herrison Island.

He says that his message is the complete opposite to that of the recent Reclaim Australia protests across the country and hopes that his message hits home with some of those protesters who demonstrated in the reclaim Australia rallies. to Find out more visit www.peterdrewarts.com
