The controversial Bill that will see all arriving asylum seekers being processed offshore, out of sight and out of mind, beyond scrutiny and legal protection, will be re-presented to Parliament this week by the Prime Minister. Opposing MPs of his party have now been lobbied and pressured to support his line and it is unsure what the final vote will now look like. Some half dozen Senators have yet to decide, and the success of the Bill depends on their support. This morning I have done what I can by writing to these Senators and urging them to oppose the Bill. One excellent site that monitors the process of this and other justice/mercy issues in this country is www.safecom.org.au I commend it and its practical call to action for those who are so called.
