The Abbott Government's asylum seeker policy is cruel and inhumane. The Australian Greens are calling for the Manus Island Detention Centre to be shut down immediately.
This week, we hope that you join us and people around the country to mourn the death of an Iranian asylum seeker on Manus Island and to stand up for a more compassionate Australia.
