It is time to shine a light into this darkness because Australians have a right to know what was done in our name.

Australians know something rotten is going on in Australia’s detention regime, but we have no way of knowing exactly what that is or who is being hurt.

This is a democracy and these places are funded by us the tax-payer. We have a right to know what is being done in our name. Because this detention industry is now run by private companies we have no way of knowing the truth.
