Many asylum seekers have languished in australian detention prisons for years, and have understandably lost hope in us. The result of the recent election is devastating for refugees on Manus, Nauru and those detained onshore. A growing number of men on Manus have attempted suicide and engaged in self-harm. Instead of showing compassion, the Federal Government responded with plans to repeal the Medevac bill, which was to provide much needed healthcare.
Right now, Sail4Justice is on its way to Manus. To speak up to injustice and show our solidarity. To show that despite the election, we care, we are watching, and we will keep fighting.
We will take your message of support with us.
Write your message to the men on Manus via our website, or send handwritten letters and cards (contact us for address). We will take these messages across the ocean.
