Kurdish Lobby of Australia

Tuesday 5 February, 2019

I had the most delightful time in Sydney this afternoon….meeting with the President of the Kurdish Lobby of Australia…Mr Eziz Bawermend.  The Lobby has been registered since 2015 and its boasts international as well as national membership.

A recently elected board member is well known human rights and refugee advocate Julian William Kennedy Burnside AO QC .Julian Burnside is walking the walk. He does his human rights work pro bono.  He and his wife have a spare room in their house. Over the years they regularly welcomed asylum seekers to live with them. Afghanis and other nationals.

Another board member is Rev Bill Crews, dearly loved and respected for his years of work with the community at the Wayside Chapel in Kings Cross.  Rev Crews is also the founder of The Exodus Foundation – feeding the hungry and operating a multipurpose Health and Outreach centre.  In 2015 Rev Crews was announced as the recipient of the 2015 New South Wales Human Rights Award.
