Amnesty International: January 2018
Amnesty International's research has shown the long-term damage immigration detention centres can have on the minds and bodies of those held there. Yet there are thousands incarcerated, often in terrible conditions — with no end in sight.
The uncertainty of not knowing how long detention might last only adds to the distress of all those affected.

This must stop. If you agree and would like to call on the government to stop the use of indefinite immigration detention, click here for how to quickly and easily add your voice of protest.
