I have never met you – but we, the Australian public see you and we hear you.
You deserve safety and freedom. But I know today will be another day you are incarcerated and indefinitely detained merely for seeking protection.
I cannot begin to imagine the personal toll detention has had on you. You’ve already endured so much, just to be safe.
No family deserves to be torn apart – no child or parent to be separated from their loved ones.
Our government continues to abuse you, degrade your dignity and deprive you of hope. This is not fair and I do not accept this. Like all of us, you deserve certainty of your future.
You are not forgotten.
I sign this letter today to say……
I continue to be a voice for you, to fight for your freedom, safety and the end of indefinite mandatory detention.
I apologise for the pain and suffering inflicted on you by the Australian Government.
I demand that you be allowed to be reunited with your family and live in safety.
I stand with you in solidarity.
