A growing number of Church and community organisations are concerned over the failure of the Government to ensure even the most basic standard of care for people in the Manus Island and Nauru detention centres. Please consider supporting the following petition calling on Immigration Minister Scott Morrison to put an end to this policy, which is fast-becoming our nation’s greatest shame. The petition to close down the Manus Island and Nauru detention centres is a collaboration between GetUp, the Refugee Action Coalition, Doctors for Refugees, ChilOut, the Australian Catholic Social Justice Council, and numerous groups and individuals fighting for compassionate and humane treatment of refugees and asylum seekers. You can sign the petition here: https://www.getup.org.au/campaigns/refugees/a-more-compassionate-australia/a-more-compassionate-australia. Also consider adding the petition to your facebook page or twitter account and distributing the link to the petition to your own email list.
