When did we get so cruel?
I AGREE with Susan Williams (letters, 11/11). The situation on Manus Island is spiralling.
How did we get to this point where the brutal conditions that detainees were escaping are now far less life-threatening than their current position?
Recently leaked footage shows the horrific conditions facing these people.
Truth, fairness and due process all out the window.
When did Australians – every one of us immigrants except indigenous people – become so cruel, heartless and uncaring of our global brothers and sisters?
We need MPs to have the courage to stand up and say no to human rights abuses instead of making misguided political mileage from peoples’ suffering. Cheryll Koop, White Rock
