So where to now on refugee policy?

A joint statement by Australian non-government organisations

You get to the place where you feel you can write nothing more about the shameful asylum seeker detention regime – especially when long-standing champions of advocacy plead that even the Nauru strategy is preferable to the latest sleight of hand involving Malaysia.

It seems that we have to move even closer to the edge of ridiculousness for even the most crowd pleasing politicians to wake up to the fact that they are participating in the theatre of the absurd. Thank God for and NGOs and church agencies that are able to keep sounding a constant drumbeat on how human beings should be treated.
