We won’t stop fighting

We won’t stop fighting until every child, woman and man on Nauru and Manus are resettled in a humane country.

Alan Dickens
Alan Dickens Apparently the Australian Government thinks New Zealand is not an acceptable place to resettle 150 refugees. This action is blatantly cruel.

Veronica Nou Apparently not. While NZ is offering to take them for free, and they have now offered to take ALL of them, Australia would rather keep paying $1Billion a year to Nauru or another $55million to some other third world country to take 4, like they did with Cambodia. Ridiculous.…/john-key-says-new-zealand…

Brian Leslie Blackwell They are are our very own political hostages. Next toi ISIS I think we are the only country in the world holding little children as hostages for a political power game. The moral fabric of this country is being torn asunder.

Kerri Lee Oh, I reckon a clever country like ours could manage to achieve more than one objective at a time… how about we spend less tormenting people overseas and redirect those millions to the homeless?
It’s called walking while you chew gum….See more

Free the Children NAURU
Free the Children NAURU Duff Peter Fotu We can help all of the homeless with the money we would save on locking people up in inhumane detention camps. It costs almost 3 million dollars for a family of 6 for one year to be held in the camp in Nauru. Ditto Kerri. We can house everyone instead of wasting it on sub standard tents.

Mary Blight
Mary Blight Yes if we did not spend around a billion a year on offshore detention of around 2500 people that would free up a lot of money. Putting refugees and asylum seekers in the community and paying them the dole would be heaps cheaper.

Val Horne I support all homeless people being housed but setting groups of homeless people against each other is utterly pointless.A compassionate society would house homeless people on the basis of need – not whether they arrived yesterday or their ancestors arrived a hundred years ago or forty thousand years ago. Save the hate for the people who are stopping you from being housed.
