We can do better
We visited people across the Catholic community and heard their message to people seeking asylum, loud and clear – “You are Welcome”.
Australia’s treatment of people seeking asylum ought to reflect our collective values of solidarity, compassion, respect for human dignity, and our desire to do good – not harm.
When we commit to welcoming people who are fleeing persecution, we do good and honour our values. When imprison people seeking safety and deprive them of what is necessary for life, we do harm.
We can do better.
The Catholic Alliance for People Seeking Asylum (CAPSA) calls the government to ensure the safety and wellbeing of people who have sought asylum in Australia, through just processes and attention to basic needs.
