Australia's offshore detention centres have become places of physical and psychological torture. (See SMH: http://www.smh.com.au/opinion/political-news/a-serious-disconnect-at-naurus-refugee-camp-20121121-29qbo.html , http://www.smh.com.au/national/christmas-island-harsh-and-overcrowded-human-rights-report-20121214-2bdj6.html )
The mistreatment and cruelty being visited on already traumatised men, women and children in these centres is being done in your and my name as Australians. Demand that the government closes all detention centres immediately and bring processing of refugees and asylum-seekers onshore.
