I once did a persuasive oral speech regarding the treatment of refugees and asylum seekers on Nauru and Manus Island for an English assignment. However, by exploring the research and articles I had found that spreading the word and speaking up is inadequate -- one must act.

    Tell Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Immigration Minister Peter Dutton: Let Them Stay

    Right now there are 267 asylum seekers in Australia who the Immigration Minister, Peter Dutton, is threatening to send back to offshore detention camps on Manus Island and Nauru.

    Among the 267 people are young babies born in Australia and kids currently going to local primary schools. There are cricket fans and accountants and great cooks, who fled war and terror to seek safety in our community. The 267 even include women who have been sexually assaulted on Nauru and now face return to their abusers.

    Tell the Prime Minister - don’t send them back.

    Take action. Call your MP to ask our government to #BringThemHere.

     

    It is clear that Manus Island and Nauru are completely unsafe for refugees and people seeking asylum.

    The people on Manus Island and Nauru must be brought to safety in our community. The evidence is clear, Australia’s cruel, off-shore detention system, is unsafe, damaging and imperils people's lives.

    As a community we cannot turn away and ignore the deplorable situation our government has created. It is time to end the system of abuse and bring people to safety in our community.

    The Australian Government has been avoiding facing the reality of its own policy’s failure. Now, we, as a community, must show them the way forward.

    #LetThemStay showed that more people than ever supported allowing people seeking asylum already in Australia to move into our communities. Now, we must prove definitively that our shared compassion extends to those on Manus Island and Nauru – and that the government must follow the public, and bring those in its abusive camps to safety in Australia.

    Take action. Sign our petition calling on our government to #BringThemHere.

    Close the camps. End the abuse. #BringThemHere
