Australian policy has exiled asylum seekers and refugees since 19 July 2013 to Manus Island in Papua New Guinea (PNG) and Nauru, where they are held involuntarily and indefinitely in harsh and dangerous conditions.
Twelve men have died.
Suicide ideation is widespread, suicide attempts are frequent, everyone is physically and mentally unwell.

Please sign the petition calling for the closure of the detention centres, and removal of all refugees and asylum-seekers to safety.
