The open letter to the PM has now closed.
We thank each of the 1272 individuals and organisations who participated in this campaign. Your support has meant a great deal to the people subjected to the routinised and systematic violence in Australia’s Pacific Black Sites.
RAPBS sent the letter to the Prime Minister and other key parliamentarians on October 2, 2015. You can view the PDF Version here. We have been very encouraged by the media coverage of our letter, and by the fact that a number of other open letters and media reports have followed in the days after we began our Out of Sight NOT Out of Mind campaign. We’re just getting started! Watch this site and our Facebook page for further updates.
We encourage those of you who were not able to sign the letter to contact your local MP as as well as the Prime Minister and Immigration Minister direct.
Thank you again for standing against the inhumane, cruel and degrading policy of offshore detention.
