Our Impact 

Manus Island detention centre closed at the end of October, yet over 600 men remain at the centre, without access to food, water or basic services.  

The men have serious concerns for their personal safety given the violence that others have faced, and are too scared to leave the centre, despite the lack of services or provisions.

The Problem

What's Being Done

The Australian Government has yet to offer the people detained on either Manus or Nauru a suitable or safe long-term resettlement option. There is no clarity as to if and when more people will be resettled to the US, and the Government has refused a resettlement option from New Zealand.

As our politicians dither, people are dying on Australia’s hands. 

Sign this petition to support our call for #SafetyForAll of the people detained.
