Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has conceded that Manus and Nauru are dead-ends, and has announced that some refugees currently in offshore detention will have the option to resettle in the United States.

This deal could be good news for some people, but we simply don't know enough details yet. So we have to turn all our energy into ensuring whatever comes next, it's a plan that includes safety and fairness for everyone.

That means we have to be clear to the government: the camps must be evacuated immediately, and the plan to make that happen must ensure everyone is given safe, humane pathways to safety – including in Australia.

Here's what we know so far – and what it means:

  • There are at least 675 people who may not be covered, or want to be covered by this deal, who will be left to suffer on Nauru and Manus. They must be immediately brought to safety in Australia.

  • The government is still pushing for the bill to ban for life anyone who arrived by boat from ever coming to Australia. That bill must be blocked.

  • And Peter Dutton has said that the 370 people currently in Australia, including children born here, will be deportated back to Nauru. They must be allowed to stay.

We need to make sure any resolution brings safety to everyone the government has illegally imprisoned.

It's looking more and more likely the future of the offshore camps will be decided in the coming weeks, before Parliament is over for the holidays.

We must get out on the front foot and keep the pressure on, by making it clear to the Turnbull Government that not a single person must be deported from safety, or left behind on Manus or Nauru.

Add your name to the petition, and let's ensure there is fairness and safety for all.
