Keep up the pressure for Manus and Nauru - #Safetyforall
Posted 9 Nov 2017 09:00AM
The global community helped a man from Manus get out of mandatory detention with the help and permission of the Australian Government.
Amir’s Canadian sponsorship and the NZ offer of resettling refugees from Manus and Nauru clearly demonstrate that there are options on the table beyond what our Government is telling us.
We need to let our Government know that it's not okay to play politics with innocent peoples' lives.
Together our powerful and repeated actions will get a safe and humane resolution for the 2000 people detained in our human rights-abusing offshore detention regime.
Hundreds of thousands of Australians are raising their voice, calling their MPs and the Prime Minister and rallying to keep the pressure on. Together we are a powerful and determined community. And we must keep fighting for what is right.
The Refugee Council of Australia asks us to:
Please pick up the phone today. Ask the Prime Minister why his Government cannot find safe options for ALL those on Manus and Nauru.
- Malcolm Turnbull - (02) 9327 3988
- Peter Dutton - (07) 3205 9977
- Or your Federal member - details here
Also ask the Prime Minister to free the people from the distressing situation he has trapped them in on Manus Island and Nauru.
