Demand the Australian Government ends the secret abuse in Nauru and Manus
The Australian Government is going to great lengths to deliberately inflict suffering on refugees and people seeking asylum, and to hide this abuse from the eyes of the world – trapping men, women and children seeking safety in Australia in abhorrent conditions.
Many people trapped on Manus Island and Nauru suffer from serious mental health problems, which are inadequately treated. Anxiety, self-harm and suicide attempts are frequent, with children as young as nine speaking openly about wanting to end their lives.
It's time to put people before politics. This secret and systematic abuse must end immediately.
The 2,200 people trapped on Nauru and Manus Island cannot wait for safety any longer.
Demand the Australian Government end their suffering and bring them here to safety.

To the Hon Peter Dutton MP
Minister for Immigration and Border Protection
I call on the Australian Government to immediately:
Close the Regional Processing Centres on Nauru and Papua New Guinea.
Bring all asylum seekers and refugees on Nauru and Manus Island to Australia immediately.
Assess, in a fair and timely manner, those whose international protection applications have not been finalised by the authorities in Nauru and Papua New Guinea.
Ensure that all those who were granted refugee status on Nauru and Manus have the right to settle in Australia
