Refugee rights groups from around the country will be converging on Yongah Hill Detention Centre (Northam, WA) on the ANZAC day long weekend, 2013, to protest against the mandatory detention of asylum seekers.
We have seen politicians engage in a race to the bottom in refugee policy. With the re-introduction of offshore processing and the situation in Nauru becoming increasingly worse, now is the time to express public outcry at this abhorrent policy.
Ayslum seekers on Nauru and Manus Island have protested consistently about the woeful conditions and the lack of any indication about when asylum processing will begin.
We have seen countless times over, that mandatory detention destroys people and we have seen time and time again that a policy of deterrence does not work.
Help us fight for a humane refugee policy and to show solidarity with asylum seekers protesting in detention.
