End the cruelty

Close The Camps

Looking after one another is at the core of who we are as Australians. That’s why we’re committed to creating fair processes to help people find safety and rebuild their lives with dignity. Help us convince the major parties to treat refugees and asylum seekers with compassion by adding your voice to our campaign now.

No more torture. We demand freedom for every person held in offshore detention.

All of us, including people who are fleeing war-torn countries, have the right to live free from danger, be treated with dignity and be given help when we need it most. 

If only the major parties understood. Instead, Liberal and Labor governments have spent the past five years locking up people in offshore hellholes, perpetrating human rights abuses and separating families who have asked for our help -- all in a cruel attempt to win votes and divide our community.

Unlike them, the Greens will always defend the rights of innocent people held in indefinite detention. We won’t stop fighting until the camps are closed and every person trapped is provided refuge in Australia.

Our Plan:

Close offshore detention
Close the Manus Island and Nauru detention centres and bring every single person man, woman and child to Australia.

Fair processing
Introduce a 7 day limit for onshore detention and provide support so that people can live in our communities.

Helping those who need it
We will increase Australia’s humanitarian intake to 50,000 per year and re-introduce Permanent Protection Visas.

Work with partner countries
Establish a system for assessing claims for protection in partner countries in a timely way, including investments in the UNHCR and other agencies in our region.
