Media Release - October 2016

 

The National Council of Churches writes to the Prime Minister and Minister for Immigration and Border Protection

The President and Board of Directors of the National Council of Churches in Australia published a Media Release on 18 October 2016 asking for cooperation to settle the asylum seekers from Nauru and Manus Islands.  

The Media release states "The continuing reports out of both places are a source of deep concern." 

Letters have been sent to both the Prime Minister and the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection to encourage them to join in discussions with faith leaders and Church organistations. These organistations have significant resources in overseas aid and domestic welfare which they can bring to the task of settling these displaced people.
