Fortitude

June 21, 2010

We marched for refugee rights on Sunday. A Tamil man who had come to Australia in the 1990s from Sri Lanka, alone, barely a teenager, told his story. His school and village were brutally attacked. He saw a classmate hanging from a tree by his intestines. Once in Australia, he was locked in detention.

How can anyone deny such people the right to live safely?

The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre is having a winter appeal. They look after individuals that have no one else. They also campaign to change legislation. They are a very, very good place to send any extra cash you have floating around before you start thinking about doing your taxes.
