Helping people still trapped in offshore processing
There are 1,384 people trapped in Australia’s offshore processing system. Even if the planned resettlement arrangements with the US, Canada and New Zealand are fully taken up, we estimate that at the very least, 505 people will be left behind.
These people have been trapped in the offshore processing system for nearly a decade with no idea when, if or how, they will ever be resettled. They live with the daily torture of endless uncertainty.
While many refugees and people seeking asylum have reason to hope for improvements under the new government, there is currently no plans to change this policy area. Together, we need to change that.
For some, it’s too much. They have gone from being vibrant, courageous people to shells of their former selves. Some are so traumatised that they are unable to participate in the resettlement process.
Now is the time to end the torture of their uncertainty, and you can help change that.
