Glynis Johns I’m ashamed that our political representatives have lost all humanity.
And the attitude of our leaders washes down to others in the country, fuelling their racism and hate.
Shame on them all.
Thank goodness that other countries have open hearts.

Debby Knudson-Hayes If they are supposed to be FREE TO MOVE AROUND NAURU AND HAVE THEIR RSD STATUS APPROVED what right does Australia have to dictate what New Zeakand, another sovereign nation does. John Keys tell Malcolm Turnbull to pull his head in and do what you know is right. Take the poor buggers off Nauru and give them life, hope and happiness.

Gabi Bruce
Gabi Bruce This is our country’s biggest shame. The way we treat refugees is illegal, immoral and abhorrent. I know it’s just words and nothing changes because our governments refuse to obey international and moral laws, but please know that there are thousands of Aussies who do want refugees to come and resettle here – we welcome you with open arms and hearts xxxx

Adrienne Godsmark
Adrienne Godsmark This CBC documentary clearly delineates our inhumane and insane “solution”. How can it be that both major parties support this? Is xenophobia and fear of terrorism the only thing that motivates these decisions? What needs to be done to turn our country around?

Jess Vanderbyl
Jess Vanderbyl Can the Canadian government right a report to our government (pathetic excuse for one we have) detailing how they viewed our prisoners to be legitimate refugees in need of rescuing? I am very happy to learn that there are options but so limited to the right conditions, so shameful it took so long, what will it take for humanity to return to parliament……
