Internment fears as Myanmar plans new camps for surviving Rohingya [IRIN - 19/9/17]

 

 

A Deakin University researcher on the history, identity and political attitudes of Rohingya Muslims is calling on the Australian Government to suspend military co-operation with Myanmar in protest against ethnic cleansing in the strife-torn Rakhine state.

Ronan Lee, a researcher in the Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation [and former Queensland parliamentarian], said the Government should condemn human rights violations by Myanmar's security forces that had caused more than 400,000 people to flee to camps in neighbouring Bangladesh since August 24.

...

Mr Lee also urged the Government to offer immediate permanent residency to Rohingya refugees currently in Australia and on Manus Island who sought a new life on Australian shores. ...  [Media Release - 22/9/17]

Guardian's latest deliberately misses the point again i.e. THIS is the policy - an ongoing manifestation of "deterrence" [22/9/17]:

 

... Because he is currently separated from his wife and child, Arash has been told by the Australian Border Force he can apply for US resettlement, but not with his family.

He must relinquish all custody of his daughter, border force officials have said.

They have sent him a “release of custody” form. ...

 

 

Refugees illegally imprisoned by Australia face an "impossible choice" because THAT is the policy.

 

It has ALWAYS been the policy - since 1992 - and until it ends nothing will change.

 

Where is the journalism, and where is the honest advocacy? 

 

 

Abbas Alaboudi is a wonderful artist, and one of Australia’s political prisoners, detained for three years on Nauru.

Abbas’s paintings powerfully convey the loneliness and hardship of indefinite internment on an island far from home, and far from Australia, where he dreamed he would find protection and freedom.

He says of his painting "this is about my situation on Nauru" [Sister Jane - 8/6/16]

 

 

Both parties agree boat people won't be settled in Australia. 

Every human rights violation against men, women and children seeking asylum in Australia flows from this policy. 

IF YOU'RE NOT DEMANDING PROTECTION, GENUINE RESETTLEMENT AND AN END TO AUSTRALIA'S BIPARTISAN ANTI-REFUGEE "DETERRENCE" POLICY AT THIS DIRE STAGE, YOU ARE COMPLICIT.  #SANCTIONAUSTRALIA CAMPAIGN [17/9/17]:

 

Australia’s continuing refugee rights violations must be called to account, and people who support human rights everywhere should stand up and join the call to Sanction Australia.

RISE Ex-Detainees calls for international human rights bodies and the United Nations to sanction Australia for its inhumane and explicit mandatory detention and refugee boat push back policies, and to exclude Australia from participation in international humanitarian and human rights fora until mandatory detention and refoulement of asylum seekers is abolished in Australia.

...

Our suffering is not happenstance but is in fact the direct manifestation and primary objective of consecutive governments’ “tough on boats” policies. ...

 

 

Is Elton John's promotion of  Equal Marraige (while not screening Majid Adin's powerful animation during Rocket Man) as he tours Australia - part of the terms of his contract? --->  ... Tourism Minister Kate Jones said the concerts were secured through a partnership between the Mackay and Cairns councils and Tourism and Events Queensland. ... [Media Release - 30/7/17]

 

 

‏@FinanceChicks [23/9/17]:  No.
