#toNZ Urgent Action
Ask your MP about #toNZ.
P
lease email or call your federal member and ask them these two questions:
     1.
What will it take for Australia to accept the NZ deal?
     2. What will happen to the asylum seekers left in PNG if
         we don’t accept the deal?
We are seeking to have every MP and Senator in the country be faced with these questions prior to an important meeting taking place next week.

Yet another beating on Manus – January 2019

Here’s an extract from Behrouz Boochani’s message on Facebook:
• Yesterday (5 Jan 19) a refugee was beaten up by a guard on Manus
• The guards on Manus and Nauru have been beating up innocent refugees in the past six years, over hundred times maybe.
• On Manus & Nauru there’s nowhere for us to go when we are mistreated.
• We are standing outside the law but still subject to it.
• A human may be able to survive physical torture and prison, but he/she can never get over humiliation.
• When you beat up a refugee, you are not hurting them physically only, you’re taking their humanity and identity. Humiliation is the ultimate torture.


Remind the politicians of the urgent need to avoid further harm and suffering for innocent people in detention:
