A Just Australia - Nauru Update

Following is a message from A Just Australia on the plight of the Sri Lankan asylum seekers on Nauru:

"As you may be aware the Sri Lankan asylum seekers on Christmas Island have now been sent to Nauru. The Government has put into place the policies of the Designated Unauthorised Arrivals bill even though this bill was withdrawn to avoid a vote and assured defeat in the Senate in the face of community outrage and the rejection by some Liberal party politicians as well as the Opposition and minor parties.

We need to take action as a community to ensure that the asylum seekers on Nauru get access to legal help.
