Sean's for A Just Australia

Sean Williams has joined a small group of Australian authors who "[do] not agree with what is happening in Australia to refugees and asylum seekers" and are prepared to use their books to publicise that fact.

The authors, working under the auspices of A Just Australia, an advertising campaign of Australians for Just Refugee Programs, plan to publicise the campaign by arranging to have the AJA logo printed "on their acknowledgments page or even on or inside front cover" of their forthcoming books, "indicating to readers now and to posterity that [they] did not agree with what is happening in Australia to refugees and asylum seekers."

Williams will join mainstream authors including Rosanne Hawke, Geraldine Brooks and Tom Shapcott in a stand which recalls that taken by Greg Egan, who in 2001 printed and distributed "We Are All Refugees" t-shirts free of charge, and whose website is headed by a statement on Australia's refugee policy with a link to the Australians for Just Refugee Programs site.
