Extension of time for Labor caucus to debate offshore detention - now 10 November 2015 - write now

Labor caucus to debate offshore detention

On  10th November the Labor Party caucus will  debate a motion prepared by Melissa Parke ,  and supported by Anna Burke, which will call on the Labor Party to close the detention centres on Manus and Nauru.  Both MPs have for many years been steadfast supporters of a humane and compassionate approach to the treatment of asylum seekers. This is  a great opportunity for RAR supporters to write to NSW Labor Senators and to Bill Shorten, Tanya Plibersek and Richard Marles, to urge them to support the motion and to recognise that  public opinion is steadily shifting towards a humane and compassionate policy that is in keeping with our international obligations.  Please tell our representatives that we are utterly opposed to the Party’s current position and that nothing less than a clear commitment to close offshore detention centres will be acceptable.
Please send your emails to:
Senator Doug Cameron:
Senator Jenny McAllister:
Senator Sam Dastyari:
Senator Deborah O’Neill:
Bill Shorten MP :
Tanya Plibersek MP :
Richard Marles MP:
You might also like to email Melissa Parke and Anna Burke  to encourage them in their endeavours to support a principled asylum policy and to tell them that you have written to NSW Senators and the Labor leadership to urge them to change the current cruel and unlawful policy. Their email addresses are:
Melissa Parke MP:
Anna Burke MP :
