Together we call for A FAIR GO for REFUGEES and PEOPLE SEEKING ASYLUM.

Our government needs to:
• End offshore processing, mandatory detention, and deportations to danger
• Give refugees permanent protection visas
• End unfair practices in processing refugee claims, and restore the right to appeal
• Give family reunion rights
Restore truth and transparency in the public discourse
• Abide by the UN Refugee Convention

Stop demonising vulnerable people – stop the calculated cruelty. We can give them HOPE and FREEDOM

Organised by the Refugee Advocacy Network
