Stick to your knitting

Dear Prime Minister,

Peter Dutton is spreading his malice and incompetence beyond the extensive realm you have given him. His repeated statements opposing marriage equality are not only wrong and completely inappropriate but have been made in such insulting, demeaning language which expresses not only his homophobia but his misogyny. He has repeatedly demonstrated that he is not fit to hold any position of responsibility. Remove him to the back bench.

For the 185th man on Manus Island

Dear Prime Minister,

Mr XXX XXX, aged XX, from XXXX is the 185th man who is now suffering a fourth year of imprisonment and torture by Australia on Manus Island.

We are snivelling around the disinterested heels of the USA, trying to get them to take over what is legally and morally our responsibility. Stop our humiliation and the escalating distress inflicted on the offshore refugees, close the camps and bring them here.

Close the camps and bring them here.

For the 182nd man on Manus Island

Dear Prime Minister

With increasing fear and sorrow I write on behalf of the 182nd man on Manus Island.

Trump is set to sign executive orders imposing a freeze on all refugee resettlement - those detained offshore should be brought to safety in Australia.

Close the camps and bring them here.
