For twenty years the Commonwealth Government’s policies and practices have stolen people’s lives and liberty. For far too long this truth has been hidden in plain sight from the people of Australia. The shadow of privatised offshore immigration camps, and those held in detention onshore has concealed multitudes of issues - from alleged torture to systemic abuse. These have had devastating consequences including 37 cases of suicide linked to immigration detention. It's time to break the silence and demand accountability.
A petition has been launched, calling on the House to establish a Royal Commission into Australia's Immigration Detention. This commission will play a critical role in:
uncovering the truth;
reflecting on the evidence; and
producing recommendations to address the lack of transparency, truth and compliance by Australia in its commitment to human rights domestically and internationally.
Please sign the petition to uncover the truth
