Without them, we wouldn't know the story of the family from Biloela, that people are being forced to sleep four to a room in a pandemic or that basic necessities like soap aren't available.

Not only would these changes take away that accountability and transparency, it would rip away refugees and asylum seekers access to their families, loved ones, legal representation and the outside world.

Can you sign the petition and call on politicians to block Dutton's latest push for unnecessary and harsh powers?

This is yet another example of the Morrison Government trying to distract from the most pressing issue - that they have indefinitely detained people seeking asylum and refugees.
