Stop the cruelty – protest at Brisbane’s detention centre
100 Sugarmill Rd, Pinkenba, Qld
FB Event here
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.

Super Saturday By-Elections
Federal By-Elections Campaign July 28 2018
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.
