Description

Creating safe pathways for people who need our help. 

Refugees and migrants have long contributed to Australian culture and society, and yet both Labor and the Liberals want to continue policies that abuse and vilify them. For years, the major parties have demonised them with terms like ‘illegals’, despite seeking asylum not being a crime. The Greens will close the offshore detention camps on Manus Island and Nauru, work towards a genuine regional solution which creates safe pathways for people seeking asylum, increase our humanitarian intake and end Temporary Protection Visas to meet our human rights obligations and provide a safe-haven for those who need it.
