More than 2000 people on Manus & Nauru face a very uncertain future.

Join TRAPSA, QCU Unions for Refugees & #FreeMojgan movement to call on Peter Dutton to act immediately - close the camps, evacuate the innocent men, women & children to Australia and allow Mojgan to apply for permanent residency.

Injustice Queensland Style: Learning the lessons from Palm Island!

It’s almost six years since the death in custody on Palm Island of Mulrunji whose “crime” was to comment on an arrest, sing a song and continue on his way when told to do so.
What happened is now well known - a coronial inquiry found that police officer, Chris Hurley, struck Mulrinji with such force, the blow was fatal. Hurley received compensation and a promotion while well respected community leader, Lex Wotton, was jailed.
After 19 months behind bars, Lex is now free, but politically muzzled.
