We the undersigned, residents of Maranoa Electorate, are writing to urge our Federal MP David Littleproud to support the immediate evacuation of all of the children, women and men in Australia’s offshore detention camps on Nauru and Manus Island.

Many of these refugees have been imprisoned for over five years and according to a plethora of reports, the effects of this long-term detention and prolonged uncertainty is tantamount to torture. There is emerging evidence of widespread sexual assault we wouldn't wish on our worst enemy, let alone vulnerable children and women. 

We appeal to your compassion Mr Littleproud, as a parent, and question how you can continue to support this regime where children have self-harmed and attempted suicide. Twelve people have died as a result of medical neglect, murder and despair.

Amnesty International and the Refugee Council of Australia have called for Australia to end all forms of immigration detention and to immediately provide adequate and timely medical care for refugees and asylum seekers. We, the undersigned Maranoa residents, support these calls and urge you to stop the abuse by evacuating the Nauru and Manus Island detention camps immediately.

We will be tabling this petition at the next sitting of Parliament in January 2019, and regularly updating Mr Littleproud to urge immediate action.

Please sign and share with Maranoa residents.
