Letters to Tyranny #31

Dear Prime Minister,

The 31st asylum seeker on Manus Island is Mr Ali XXX from Iran. He is only 25 years old. That is the same age as my daughter. Despite having been on Manus Island for more than three years he has continued his art practice under the pen name Mr Eaten Fish. He has recently received an international award for courage in editorial cartooning from Cartoonist Rights Network International. 

How quickly can you alleviate Mr Eaten Fish's suffering and bring him and the other off-shore detainees back to Australia?

Yours faithfully

Ruth Halbert
