Violence and fear

Dear Prime Minister,

We are tired. The refugees are exhausted and afraid. The locals on Manus and Nauru are angry and feel betrayed. The Manus deadline of 31 October to close the camp is looming and Australia seems to have coerced PNG into providing alternative accommodation, with no security for the refugees and no consultation with the locals. We are tired but we will not stop working until the refugees are safe. Thousands protested in Canberra and Melbourne, many more held vigils around the country for Rajeev, the latest victim. Protests and disruptions will continue.

You have the power to end the suffering. Bring all refugees in offshore detention to safety and freedom now.
