Over 1.5 years since “US refugee deal” announced
10 deaths offshore
Its time – Bring Them Here!

On the 19th of July 2013, then-Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced that all asylum seekers who arrived in Australia by boat would not be resettled here. This July marks five years too many for the refugees and asylum seekers on Manus and Nauru.

We need to loudly tell the Coalition government to Bring Them Here, and in the lead up to ALP national conference, tell the ALP it’s time to change policy.

Offshore processing must end
Boat turnbacks must end
