The Blue Mountains Refugee Support Group Inc (BMRSG) was formed in 2001 out of the outrage felt by our community when Australia ignored the international law of the sea and refused to take refugees rescued at sea by the Norwegian freighter The Tampa. We have been working for justice for refugees ever since
We are a refugee support organisation made up of ordinary Australians from all sides of politics. As one of the refugee advocacy groups in Australia, we have no specific religious affiliations. We are an incorporated association, registered in NSW and a registered charity. We are all volunteers.
