Keep families together: Get Up Petition

Circle of Friends Australia has been supporting Mehreen since she was moved to Adelaide from Nauru to give birth to her daughter. The same daughter recently turned 3 years old and has still never met her father outside of the Kilburn detention facility where he is being held.  A recent report from the Human Rights Law Centre titledTogether in Safety reveals that hundreds of women like Mehreen have been kept separated from their families while paperwork for release of people from detention centres were ignored for two years by previous Minister for Home Affairs. Get Up has put together a petition to new Minister of  Home Affairs Karen Andrews to request families be reunited now. You can read more about this and sign petition here.
