Detention Action says their campaign to stop offshore detention is getting stronger every day.

In the last week we've seen:

  • More Conservative MPs rebel by officially opposing offshore detention
  • A massive increase in media coverage of these terrifying plans
  • Priti Patel receiving domestic and international criticism for her attempts to set up offshore detention camps

This is all great news, but the next two weeks are going to be crucial in stopping the government gaining these new powers. We need you and your MP to help us now more than ever.

So, Chris, will you write to your MP and ask them to join those already taking a stand against offshore detention?

Yes, I'll write to my MP →

Priti Patel is getting even more desperate to stop people making asylum claims here. We know she'll stop at nothing and won't worry about the dignity or safety of the people she detains in offshore camps.

Last week the Albanian Government shot down Ministers' claims that they were considering hosting offshore detention centres. This was great progress, but we have to make sure this irresponsible Government never have the power to bully any other countries into running these shameful camps.

One of the Government's own MPs has put forward a law that would block Priti Patel from giving herself offshore detention powers. He's been helping us to build a movement of politicians taking a stand against her.

It's amazing that we've got MPs already signed up, but we need as many more on board as possible. The more politicians sign up to oppose offshore plans, the more likely it is we can end offshore detention before it gets a chance to destroy anyone's life.

We need to show MPs what their constituents think of those who stand by while this Government gives itself the power to send people seeking asylum to distant camps. We need to remind them what a stain it will leave on their reputation.

Please take two minutes to write to your MP here, and help to stop offshore detention in its tracks.

Thank you
