Federal Cabinet can free refugees at any time January 04, 2018 in politics Dear Prime Minister, The Australian government’s determination that the refugees residing on Manus and Nauru never come to Australia and its inability to find other homes for all of them has created what one MP calls an “intractable problem”. There are many intractable problems in international affairs but this is most certainly not one of them. The solution is a straightforward one and entirely within the authority of the federal cabinet to implement. It is high time it did so. — Jenny Hayward-Jones, http://www.internationalaffairs.org.au/australianoutlook/australia-refugee-2017/ Bring all refugees on Manus and Nauru to freedom and safety now.
