Immigration Detention

To the Honourable the Speaker and the House of Representatives

This petition of Healesville RAR - Rural Australians for Refugees and certain citizens of Australia, draws to the attention of the House: The Australian Government's policy of overseas detention is unjust and inhumane. The indefinite detention of refugees and asylem seekers on Nauru and Manus Island is contrary to the basic principles of human rights. The Government's deliberate punishment and exclusion of innnocent refugees and asylum seekers in direct conflict with the Convention and the benefits of all decent Australians..

We therefore ask the House to Bring all refugees amd asylum seekers in detention on Nauru and Manus Island to Australia without delay.
