*Free the Refugees - End Detention Now
*Job Seeker and Job Keeper for Refugees and Asylum Seekers

The indefinite detention of refugees in Australia's detention network must end. After more than 7 years, refugees must be released into the community on permanent protection visas. Refugees have survived the offshore torture camps, medical evacuations, isolation, and months of heightened Covid risk because of the conditions in detention. Mental distress and suicide attempts have escalated.

Refugees and asylum seekers living in the community have been cruelly excluded from Job Keeper and Job Seeker payments. They have been left destitute, and relying on the much diminished capacity of charities, or left even more vulnerable to workplace exploitation. They deserve permanency and welfare rights now.

Stand together to call on Peter Dutton and Scott Morrison to end the refugee cruelty now.
