Grandmothers Against Detention of Refugee Children advocate for the freedom of all asylum seeker and refugee children detained under policies and actions authorised by the Australian Government.
We are a movement of women with insights and experience in rearing children to grow up feeling safe and happy. Consequently, we are outraged about what our country has done and the harm it continues to do to already vulnerable children seeking refuge.
Our aim is to create momentum across Australia to free all refugee and asylum seeker children with their families and to free all unaccompanied minors. We call on the Australian parliament to behave compassionately towards refugee and asylum seeker children and to free them all with their families to be safely and permanently settled in community environments.
We organise to bring awareness of the children’s plight to Australian communities and to Australian politicians.
