La­bor - The Bet­ter Choice for our Berowra and our Fu­ture

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Local Politics - JOHN DUNN for a La­bor Fed­eral seat of Berowra

Manus Is­land . . . is this Aus­tralia’s ex­am­ple to the world? 8 deaths on Manus Is­land and Nauru, what is go­ing on? Has Dut­ton and the Fed­eral gov­ern­ment lost its mind . . . . What hap­pened to duty of care? Is it lost onto far far away places? And lets spent some more money . . . $ 4.89 BIL­LION. Yes BIL­LION, of our money, on a slow killing, sole de­stroy­ing de­ten­tion cen­ter and now we have the con­fu­sion of shuf­fling peo­ple with mums, sons, and wife’s as well as rel­a­tives over­seas, and very likely, some in Aus­tralia. Send­ing them to dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions where there is a hos­tile re­cep­tion await­ing them .... the anger of the lo­cal peo­ple is on TV and all they can see is it GROW­ING . . . 600 peo­ple, a lot still in shock of the mur­der of Raza Barati a 23 year old Ira­nian man beaten to death by two men (now in jail for his mur­der) one armed with a piece of wood with a nail in the end! The other guy just dropped a large rock on his head.

Peo­ple are vis­i­bly shak­ing from shock, liv­ing in steel con­tain­ers out the back in the sti­fling, muggy heat. Is this us? Is this how we treat peo­ple who want to come to our coun­try by boat be­cause it is a “safe” coun­try? Where have we gone wrong? For the spend of such a mas­sive amount of money ($4.89 BIL­LION) a bet­ter so­lu­tion must be made avail­able for them and for Aus­tralia’s rep­u­ta­tion on the world stage to not slide any more.
