Dear Prime Minister,
On Saturday 4/11, I marched in the Parade for More Parades. It was a festive, colourful event for the locals and visitors to Denmark, WA, to celebrate the pleasure of being together and having fun where all are welcome. Among the costumes, musicians and kids my husband and I walked and carried our banners. You may remember seeing our 'Refugees are Welcome. End Offshore Detention' banner outside the ANZAC Centre at Albany when you visited there. We handed out fliers with information about Australia's human rights' abuses, illegal actions and gross waste of money in offshore detention. We were applauded and thanked.
At the same time, 5000km away on Manus Island some of the men have succeeded in digging wells (using a metal pole) to access water. They have not eaten since Tuesday.
