Set on fire

Dear Prime Minister,

I intended to write today's letter encouraging you and the government to take advantage of the offer from the ACT to house and support some of the refugees from Manus and Nauru. But news has just come from Nauru that another refugee has set himself on fire. The message from Nauru concludes:

'When asked if the family of the young man would mind the information being shared I received this answer: "No coz their kid is in hell."'

Prime Minister, this is not politics, not security, not strength. This is people in agony. Bring them all to saftey and freedom.
