Refugee Action Collective
Abolish mandatory detention which violates basic human rights and contravenes the UN Refugee Convention, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Stop deporting asylum seekers who face torture and death in the country from which they have fled. Stop "offshore processing". Stop racist scapegoating such as calling asylum seekers “illegals”, “economic migrants”, and “queue jumpers.” Stop the lie that Australia is in danger of being overrun by 'boat people'. Educate the public about our obligations to refugees under Australian and international law.
