Bring Them Here
4 YEARS IS TOO LONG
Join the protest on the 4th anniversary of the re-opening of Offshore Processing. The 19th of July this year will be the 4th anniversary since Kevin Rudd announced the ‘PNG Solution’ saying that refugees who came by boat after this date would never be settled in Australia.
For four long years refugees have been trapped on the hell holes of Manus and Nauru. They have suffered violent attacks from those supposed to be protecting them. Rapes, assault and abouse have occurred on Nauru. Reza Barati was murdered on Manus, and Hamid Khazaei and Faysal Ahmed died as a result of neglect. Most recently 100 rounds were fired into the detention centre on Manus, by PNG Navy personell.
Immigration Minister Dutton has been caught out lying about the cause of the recent attacks on refugees and asylum seekers – he must be sacked. But most of all it is time to end four years of Australian cruelty and human rights abuses.
It has become more obvious that the US deal is a failure, and that neither PNG nor Nauru can offer safe and pemanent resettlement. Manus and Nauru must be closed and all refugees and asylum seekers brought to Australia.
