An update

We are continuing to seek clarification and greater detail about what happened on Saturday and will publish those details as they come to hand. As everyone will appreciate, getting information out of these camps is incredibly difficult and risky for the women involved. We are constantly balancing the need to get their voices heard and to get the facts absolutely straight. That means sometimes we may appear slow off the mark and other times some of the detail may need further clarification. That is why the Turnbull government must open Australia's camps to civil society and the international media. We thank you for your patience and solidarity.
