OH Mr. Abbott and Mr. Dutton Read this Dear Australians in Cambridge (and to all supporters), This Monday is Australia Day, but some of us don’t much feel like celebrating while hundreds of asylum seekers are on hunger strike in Australian Government run detention centres. The Australian Government is responsible for an unfolding human rights emergency. So we are putting out this call to action for an afternoon snap action in solidarity with asylum seekers illegally detained by the Australian Government in Manus Island, Papua New Guinea (PNG). In holding this vigil, we hope to send a strong message to the Australian Government that the international community is watching as human rights are violated in detention centres across Australia, Nauru and PNG. To those who suffer inside these detention centres, we send our solidarity and compassion for their struggle. Asylum seekers in the Australian Government-managed detention centre are detained under horrendous conditions, and right now are holding a large ...

Their previous peacefull demonstration ended up with a murded of an Iranian asylum seeker and over 70 casualities containing one being shot and two lost eyes by Australian Government. This time but, all strikers prepared themselves for death. Desperate refugees and asylum seekers stopped eating and drinking and gathered under the open shelter in Mike compound from 13.Jan.2015. that the action triggered other compounds to follow them on 14.Jan.2015, everybody here admits that this kind of death is so much honourable than to be killed in PNG by locals.
