This year has seen the first ever Parliamentary Inquiry into immigration detention

Please join us on 10th December to bring attention to the Inquiry’s findings, to highlight the injustices of detention and encourage MPs to take action.

Human Rights Day Flier – Please use the postcard on the back of the flier to write to your MP to encourage them to attend the event and accept BRR’s four recommendations:

1. There should be a maximum time limit on all detentions;

2. There should be improved judicial oversight of detention;

3. Vulnerable people should never be detained;

4. All detainees should be provided with the information and support they need to understand and protect their rights.
