Our only crime is not dying at sea

Dear Prime Minister,

On 11 August 2017, the men in Manus Island Refugee Processing Centre gathered for peaceful protests for the eleventh day. Some men have been in Manus Island detention centre for more that 1500 days.
Since Hamed’s death, the protests have been silent - a sign of their respect and great sadness over losing their friend and brother in suffering.
The Manus men’s messages to the world included:
~ Why don’t you feel our pain?
~ What will you lose if we live with people who love us?
~ 1380 days in detention.
~ Wake up UN 4 your duty
~ Our only crime is not dying in the sea.
~ Killing our hope is Australia’s goal.
~ Our goal is not to get killed in PNG

What is your answer, Prime Minister, to their questions? What will you lose if the refugees live with the people who love them? End offshore detention now and bring all asylum seekers to freedom.
