‘This is critical’: 103 Nauru and Manus staff speak out – their letter in full

The Guardian
17 August, 2016

“An unprecedented one hundred and three former staff previously and currently employed in offshore processing centres on Manus Island and Nauru have today issued a statement warning that the only way to secure the safety of refugees and asylum seekers in these locations is to bring them to Australia immediately.

Those who support this view include doctors, teachers, case workers, managers and social workers from Broadspectrum (formerly Transfield), Save the Children, IHMS, Salvation Army and other contracted workers with first-hand experience across both Manus Island and Nauru Regional Processing Centres.”

The Australian government just announced they were ready to close the camp in Manus Island. How long before they decide to do the same for the one in Nauru?
