We were outside Mt Eden Prison on Tuesday morning on the 18th of May 2021 joining with @AmnestyNZ and @Asylum_Trust_nz to demand that asylum seekers no longer be imprisoned! Seeking safety is not a crime!
@KrisinMana you have the responsibility to set them free & accommodate compassionately.
Call on Minister of Immigration – Hon. Kris Faafoi – to end the use of criminal justice facilities to detain people seeking asylum & to implement the recommendations laid out in Amnesty’s report. :
