Our Campaign

Welcome to the Justice Campaign website.

We are a dedicated group of global citizens that believe that universally recognised human rights and the rule of law should never be compromised.

Although the events surrounding the David Hicks case have caused much speculation, misinformation and controversy over the years, the right to a fair trial, to be free from torture, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment and the right to justice should never be controversial; and every one should be protected from human rights abuses. This is why a group of dedicated Australians, who stand by the rule of law and human rights protections, are calling on the Australian government to join President Obama and countless international law experts, and formally recognise the 2006 Military Commissions Act as ‘fatally flawed’ and unfair.

The first step is to open an independent investigation into the David Hicks case, with special consideration given to allegations of torture and the political interference associated with his eventual plea deal. The investigation must be open- the Australian people have a right to know, and transparency is a fundamental principle of a democratic government.

No Australian citizen should be subjected to an unfair system unsupported by the rule of law and principles of fairness. Most importantly- no person should be subjected to torture, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment.
