Get Up

Letters to Tyranny #18

Dear Prime Minister,

On the eighteenth day of this series of letters I would like you to think about Mr XXX XXX from XXX, who is currently detained on Manus Island.

In The Guardian report on 14 August, Matthew Phillips, human rights director with Get Up, responded to the report and photographs of a violent attack on two refugees, one of whom may have been Mr XXX. Please look at the link: it is important that you see the photo of the young man unconscious on the ground. Mr Phillips said the violence was "the grave danger the Turnbull government's abusive policy of offshore detention places people on a daily basis."

Please remove them from that danger.

Yours faithfully,

Ruth Halbert
