End offshore detention #242

Dear Prime Minister,

In the forward to "They Cannot Take the Sky", Christos Tsiolkas quotes Hani (one of the contributors to the book)

I realised that freedom ... means to be free mentally and physically
— Hani

and he asks

Chained to policies that we all know in our hearts to be destructive and inhuman, can it be said that we Australians are truly free?
... think of what our country could be if [we] had not had such stupid laws
— Christos Tsiolkas

Why have you settled for such a diminished idea of our country, Prime Minister?
