Found in: News

Last week should have heralded in a “new era of good government”, according to our Prime Minster.  We ask the reincarnated PM to provide moral leadership and put an end to the practice of putting children who seek asylum into detention centres and camps.

The Taskforce says that the demonising of the Human Rights Commission is totally unethical


The Taskforce believes pressure is building within Government ranks to end the policy that has led to long-term child detentions. Misha Coleman, Taskforce EO, said there was a significant and growing number of backbenchers that want change. Hear the audio File
