Make Australia kind again
Detainees at a high-security detention centre in Melbourne’s north say they are concerned for the welfare of a severely mentally unwell Canadian woman who has been locked up in the facility.
The 64-year-old woman is understood to be suffering from serious mental health problems. Detainees have been told the woman has dementia, but it’s unclear whether she has been formally diagnosed by a psychiatrist.

Petition to Scott Morrison re Rajan:
Our government has kept Rajan locked up in immigration detention for almost 10 years. Now he has been diagnosed with leukaemia. Please let Rajan live in our community with the support of the many friends who care for him.

Citizenship Bill
Submissions closed on April 27 2018.
Don’t miss your chance to say “NO” to proposed changes to citizenship law. The Parliamentary Committee online survey which allows you to express your view on the Australian Citizenship Legislation Amendment (Strengthening the Commitments for Australian Citizenship and Other Measures) Bill 2018 closes at 5pm on 27 April 2018 AEST.
The proposed legislation would require an eight year wait to apply for citizenship, instead of one year. The Bill also demands much higher-level English competency for citizenship.
Long waiting periods for citizenship and excessively high English competence are unjust, unfair and cruel barriers to the most vulnerable new arrivals, who have so much to contribute to Australia as citizens.
Written submissions can also be sent to Citizenshipbill@aph.gov.au. Please circulate this message to community members and stakeholders.
See sample submission on the Bill here.
