The planned on-site event at the SIEV X Memorial has sadly been cancelled. However, we encourage anyone who is in Canberra to visit the Memorial in Weston Park on or around 16 October.
16 October is the 20th anniversary of sinking of the SIEV X. The memorial has become an important Canberra landmark, which was built to remember all the lives lost when the SIEV X vessel, overloaded with refugees, sank on the way from Indonesia to Australia. You can read the full story on the SIEV X Memorial website.
