Community sector wants better deal for refugees

Leaders of Australia’s major charities and social service organisations have signed a statement calling on the Australian Government to give up offshore processing and establish a humane approach to people seeking asylum.

The campaign is being lead by the national peak welfare body, the Australian Council of Social Services, which ran the asylum seeker statement as a half-page advertisement on page 8 of The Australian newspaper on 8 September 2011.

The advertisment included the full statement, along with the names of the 200 signatory organisations, including PIAC.
