PM – Police poised for more violence on Christmas Island 18/03/2011.

Asylum seekers locked up indefinitely behind gates in overcrowded quarters on a tiny and remote Indian Ocean island.
Some have been there 20 months with no knowledge of expected outcomes.
A plot from “Lost”?
Nope, its what Australia’s Border Protection Policy looks like and there is no evidence that its architects have any regard for humanitarian care, mental health and agreed international conventions on the treatment of asylum seekers.

So they pull a McMurphy and attempt to make a break. Is anyone surprised?
