Letters to Tyranny #80

Dear Prime Minister,

While you and Minister Dutton hide behind a wall of staff who merely say "we will pass on your message" there is a growing group of people around Australia who are acting to directly support the prisoners on Manus Island and Nauru. Today a fundraiser was started in response to Masoud Ali Sheikh's need for emergency medical treatment in Lorengau Hospital. He should have been flown to Australia for treatment. How much has Australia spent on the medical 'services' in the detention camp on Manus Island? Purely symbolic: an Orwellian institution where every function means its opposite.

Bring them here
