End offshore detention. #97

Dear Prime Minister,

The most challenging aspect of trying to work for change in Australia's approach to asylum seekers and refugees is the realisation that no argument or legal course of action can have any effect because of the cynical truth that the issue is not being treated on its legal and moral merits, but is used merely as part of a political strategy in maintaining power. The lives of men like Mr XXX XXX, aged XX, of XXX, the 97th man on Manus Island, are apparently being sacrificed for you and your colleagues' amusement.

Do you see how this becomes a situation where reasonable people feel that their only recourse is to start to act outside of the law?
