Gunshots on Good Friday

Dear Prime Minister,

Today, Good Friday, the detainees on Manus Island are being shot at. Behrouz Boochani reported:

This evening some of the refugees and local people fought each other near the soccer ground. The PNG navy started firing shots and all of the refugees came back to the centre to their rooms and tents. The Navy shot more than 100 times and some of the bullets hit rooms. The refugees and Australian officers are extremely scared and are in the centre now in the rooms and tent. I have not heard that anybody is injured. In the past hour no shots fired.

Prime Minister it is horrifying that people who have fled war, violence and threat of death are now trapped by Australia, unprotected, and today being shot at. It is urgent that Australia 

  1. brings all people in offshore detention to Australia;
  2. establishes a Royal Commission into Australia's regime of indefinite detention including the effects it has had on the people of Manus Island and Nauru who have also suffered;
  3. compensate the asylum seekers, refugees, Manusians and Nauruans.
