A call to action
A splendid editorial that was a call to action, not just a nod of agreement. Until the Australian government fears it may lose votes, even seats, it will persist with this cruel policy towards the asylum seekers. The condemnation of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees does not move them, the appeals of well-qualified lawyers, the actions of the many refugee support groups mean nothing to a government lacking humanity and any sense of morality. The phone calls and letters of protest of thousands may influence them. Let’s do it.
