Five years of indefinite offshore detention

Media Release
Nick McKim 19 Jul 2018

Five years of offshore detention is five years too long, Greens Immigration Spokesperson Nick McKim says.

“There are many hundreds of people still suffering on Manus Island and Nauru because of Labor’s cowardice and the Liberals’ cruelty,” Senator McKim said.

“There are children who were born in offshore detention who have spent their whole lives in exile.”

“Labor locked them up, and the Liberals threw away the key.”

“How much longer must people suffer before the bipartisan cruelty of offshore detention is stopped?”

“Enough is enough. Every child, woman and man must be brought to freedom and safety in Australia now.”

“On this tragic anniversary, it’s heartening that so many Australians continue to fight so hard for decency and compassion.”
