The Turnbull Coalition government is taking 12,000 Syrian refugees, but continues to imprison
other Syrians offshore – for over 26 months now. Turnbull says he is ‘concerned’ about refugees
on Manus and Nauru, but ‘they will never come to Australia’. Prime Minister Turnbull says ‘It is my dream that Australia will be known for respecting women’ but the rapes on Nauru continue, and ‘Abyan’ pregnant from rape has been forced back to Nauru without counselling or an abortion. Come to a forum to discuss what a truly humanitarian response would look like, and we how we can challenge the hypocrisy built into Australia’s detention regime.
