For the 109th man on Manus Island

Dear Prime Minister,

Your announcement on Sunday 13 November that the US 'might' take 'some' refugees from the regional processing centres has no substance, no time frame, nothing quantified.

Behrouz Boochani, Kurdish journalist currently illegally imprisoned on Manus Island, as always gets to the point: that this latest 'promise' by us is yet another form of oppression and lacks any recognition of the humanity and rights of the people we have so cruelly treated and betrayed. You need to do much better than this.
