Letters to Tyranny #62

Dear Prime Minister,

In previous letters I have written to you about Aziz, Shazad, Junaid, Imran, Aadil, Amir, Mamud and Nayser.

They are eight of the brave refugees whose stories are published on www.bringthemhere.org. Even the bare details completely contradict your government's emotive and false language of asylum seekers as "threats", "illegals", "queue jumpers". The asylum seekers are in fact victims, what they have done is not illegal and there is no queue for them to jump because Australia takes fewer refugees now that it did in the 1980s.

Can you start telling the truth, change the language and close the offshore detention camps?

Bring them here.

Ruth Halbert
