There are still over 1300 refugees and people seeking asylum trapped on Nauru and Manus Island. Meanwhile, in our own neighbourhoods, refugees are stuck in the limbo of temporary protection, and thousands of people seeking asylum are facing homelessness and destitution after devastating service cuts.
We are coming into an election year. This is our best chance to change these inhumane policies. It is time to turn our voices into action.
It is time to act.
As a federal election looms we know that the next few months will be critical. We must show politicians across the spectrum that Australians believe in justice and fairness for refugees and people seeking asylum.
