Mary Blight It is hypocritical of the Australian government to call on Nauru to stop censorship when they do not allow any information out on what is happening in Nauru. I am so glad this page is here! Good on you! heart emoticon

Bea Conley I mean that after maintaining secrecy about “border protection” policies, and passing laws to deter whistleblowers, the Australian government has an incredible nerve to tell Nauru to end censorship!!

Kishwar Ghazi When you are less compliant with international law than failed states, it’s time to reassess. Nauru is not a signatory to many crucial human rights instruments. But there are ways around that and when Nauru becomes the subject of legal proceedings for these violations, Australia will be prosecuted too.

Jo Bain Looking forward to seeing both Liberal and Labor politicians being confronted in the Hague – they do not act for Australians, they act for their corporate sponsors.

Glen Reeves Nauru becoming the subject of legal proceedings? Where? How? If they’re not signatories to the relevant conventions then the ICJ can’t do anything. The ICJ deals with disputes between signatory countries, and no, there’re no “ways around that”.

Sarah Swain Thank you for sharing your story Salam. I’m so sorry that you are locked up on Nauru and so are many Australians. We will continue the fight and I know that you will be free one day.
