Manus Island and Nauru Detention Centres

To the Honourable the Speaker and the members of the House of Representatives

This petition of Rural Australians for Refugees Queanbeyan and other concerned citizens draws to the attention of the House:

The conditions for asylum seekers and refugees in the Manus Island and Nauru detention centres. These conditions are unacceptable, being unable to guarantee the safety and wellbeing of people held in these centres. This has been demonstrated through a number of incidents.

We therefore ask the House to:

Abide by Australia's obligations, both legal and humanitarian, and close the Manus Island and Nauru detention centres now.
