Three activists scaled the roof of immigration minister Peter Dutton’s Brisbane electorate office on November 2 to protest the government’s proposed new immigration law.
Activists Scarlett Squire, Kelly Purnell and Ellen Sargent climbed the roof and unfurled an Australian flag covered in blood.
Under the proposed law, any asylum seeker attempting to enter Australia by boat will be banned from ever entering the country.
The legislation will be retrospective from 2013, so it will affect people already detained in camps on Manus Island and Nauru as well as refugees currently living in Australia on bridging visas or in community detention.
Squire said: "We are complicit in and initiate international conflicts which result in people becoming displaced. Having created the problem this government then persecutes the victims."
