Letters to Tyranny #10

Dear Prime Minister

The tenth asylum seeker, Mr XXX XXX, is one of the nearly 900 asylum seekers on Manus Island in limbo. According to the Papua New Guinea member of parliament for Manus Island, Mr Ronnie Knight, those who have been granted refugee status have no prospect of finding work nor making a life for themselves in impoverished PNG. As Mr Knight says "We cannot leave people in limbo like this." Australia put them there so they must take some responsibility.

How soon can Australia act on behalf of these vulnerable people?

Yours faithfully

Ruth Halbert
