Australia's 'cruel' asylum regime must end, say 190 experts

Leading psychiatrists, bioethicists, human rights lawyers, novelists, priests and refugee advocates have published a collective document accusing the Australian government of inhumane treatment of asylum seekers and demanding an end to mandatory detention and offshore processing.

In a “j’accuse” statement, signed by more than 190 individuals and organisations, the collective argues Australia is “pursuing a policy of detention for asylum seekers, both adults and children, in spite of clear evidence that it causes psychiatric disorders, self-harm and suicide”.

It says Australia’s policy of deterring asylum seekers, in which they are all moved to offshore detention centres on Papua New Guinea and Nauru, “requires damaging some to deter others and uses the lives of vulnerable people, the vast majority of whom are found to be refugees, as a means to a political end”.

Professor Louise Newman, one of Australia’s foremost developmental psychiatrists and a signatory to the statement, said the document “pulls together prominent Australians with a shared view that current responses to asylum seekers, including children, are cruel, unnecessary and unacceptable”.

indeed. The current system was created under the previous (left wing) government and the media (left wing) wasn't critical of it really at all.

Now we have a new (right wing) government and the (left wing) media has decided to raise the issue.

There are far less people in those centres now than there were 12 months ago because the people smuggling trade has been stopped.

Yet the (left wing) media is only deciding to look at the centres.

The Guardian in Australia is not much more than a mouthpiece for welfare dependents. It is nothing like the UK version and I'm staggered it is even here because it is making big losses.

It is like a newspaper NGO. in the age of information being at your finger tips it beggars belief that a commercial entity would set up a new offering in a dying market.

The Guardian in Australia is not here for the profit motivation by any means.

I just love being culturally enriched by the traitorous government and their stooges and lackeys.
