Letters to Tyranny #19

Dear Prime Minister,

Today I get on a plane and fly, of my own free will, to Melbourne. Mr XXX XXX, aged XX, the nineteenth person trapped on Manus Island, is unable to fly to where he wants to go. And his need is much, much greater than mine.

How soon can you use the power you have to allow the refugees and asylum seekers to fly home to Australia?

Yours faithfully

Ruth Halbert
