Now is the time for change
After nearly a decade of our collective rallying and advocacy as a movement, and with the federal election looming, the Australian government is under strong pressure to find a solution. The human and financial cost of the current policy is too great for Australia to ignore any longer.
The price tag on regional processing has already reached a phenomenal $9.5 billion. And with a growing number of candidates in the federal election making the humane treatment of refugees an issue, now is the perfect opportunity to make an impact. Now is a critical time to leverage this pressure and momentum and find solutions for the remaining people still trapped in the offshore processing system.
With your help, RCOA will work to ensure the remaining 505 refugees in the offshore processing system get to safety.
