Immigration Detention Facilities
That the Senate calls on the government to:
(a) facilitate media access to the detention camps in Nauru and Manus Island to provide for transparency and public accountability about the conditions inside the camps;
(b) lift the current ban on photographs and footage of the detention facilities; and
(c) allow consenting asylum seekers and refugees within the facilities to speak freely to media agencies and journalists.
