Human Rights pledge

Dear Prime Minister,

On 8 March 2018 Australia joined with nine other countries to make an Incoming Members' Pledge at the Human Rights Council in Geneva. The pledge included the following:

'[to] engage in the work of this Council in a spirit of self-reflection with a view to improving our own human rights situation, recognising that no State has a perfect human rights record'

In the case of Australia's treatment of asylum seekers the UN has repeatedly reported and condemned Australia for continuing human rights abuses on Manus Island, PNG and Nauru. What will your Government do to meet the obligations of our pledge to the Human Rights Council?

Bring all refugees and asylum seekers to freedom and safety now.
