The Nauruan Police are taking refugee’s phones

The Nauruan Police are taking refugee’s phones if they take photos of the protest. What would happen in Australia if police took your phone because the government didn’t want you to take a photo of a protest?

Julie Stirling The issue with repression of the truth is that it requires increasing infringement of personal liberty to the point of cruelty. It is sad that that is a better option than having the courage to right the wrongs.
