MELBOURNE SAYS LET THEM STAY

The Melbourne we all love is filled with loving and compassionate people who welcome those from all walks of life. But the way our Government treats refugees and people seeking asylum deeply violates those values. 

Since November 2019, over 60 men have been detained cruelly and indefinitely in Melbourne, first at the Mantra Hotel in Preston and now at the Park Hotel in Carlton, right in the heart of our community.

‘Melburnians have been calling for the release of the Park Hotel refugees and the hundreds of others detained across the country – and we know that community pressure is working.’

Over recent months, 46 refugees from the Park Hotel have been released into the community and granted bridging visas, experiencing freedom for the first time in 8 years. 

This is a massive win for these men and for our fight against the government’s cruel treatment of refugees. 

But 12 men are still trapped in the Park Hotel, with no certainty about their future, with hundreds of others forcibly detained around Australia, Manus and Nauru. We must keep up the pressure on the Federal Government to close all detention centres.

Sign the petition today to ensure the 12 remaining men at the Park Hotel and hundreds of others cruelly detained can finally be set free.
