Dehumanising

Dear Prime Minister,

Why have the refugees on Manus Island had their previous IDs removed and replaced by a number? How can this be for any purpose except to attempt to further strip them of their humanity?

What is more dehumanising than living as a 6-character boat ID for over 4 years? That ID being replaced with a NEW number!!

End offshore detention and evacuate all refugees to freedom and safety now.
