Letters to Tyranny #69

Dear Prime Minister,

Behrouz Boochani and the other men on Manus Island, and the men, women and children on Nauru, have been kidnapped by a political whim of Australia and denied their rights under a regime that is unlawful yet pretends to use the language of the law. Free the asylum seekers, restore them to Australia and honour the international law that we profess to uphold.

 ‘For us there is no way ahead towards the future and no way behind to the past’

 ‘For us there is no way ahead towards the future and no way behind to the past’

Bring them here

Ruth Halbert
