After a national inquiry into children being held in detention centres in Australia. It has been alleged that the Australian government has been covering up the mental health issues among children being detained.
Firstly, I’d like to point out that under international law and basic human rights, seeking asylum is not illegal. You can arrive in any country by any mode of transport, with no documentation to seek asylum.
That is something any human being is allowed to do.
Although it’s legal to do so, Australia is basically imprisoning people for something that is not illegal.
Quite a few of these people are children.
In Australia you have to be 18 to be locked up in a prison or jail if you commit a crime. But if you escape from your country out of fear for your life and come here, you need to be any age to be imprisoned and treated worse than a prisoner in Australia.
These children don’t have access to schooling facilities.
Some are seperated from their parents.
The government is alleged to cover up physical and sexual abuse to towards children in detention centres.
These things take a huge toll on a child’s life.
In the past 15 months there have been more than 128 cases of self harm by children in Australia’s detention centres. There have been 171 cases of children threatening to self harm.
These children have tried to commit suicide and it is common for them to bang their heads against walls.
In other cases, a three year old girls epilepsy medication was taken away. They have also taken away glasses, hearing aids and other medications have also been taken away from both children and adults who are detained.
"Jesus knew there was a place for everything, and it is not necessarily everyone’s place to come to Australia." - Tony Abbott
Our Prime Minister is the scum of the earth. He says that it is not necessarily everyone’s place to come to Australia. On several occasions he has sent boats coming towards Australia back to their own countries without processing anyone for asylum seeker status. He has ordered a media blackout on boats that arrive in Australia with asylum seekers who are then detained. He is doing absolutely nothing to help these children and adults except destroying their lives.
Tony Abbott has also declared that we’re on the verge of a economic crisis. Then he should tell us why he is spending so much on imprisoning people in such disgusting inhumane conditions.
It costs more to house each person at the Manus Island detention centre than it would if we were to put them in a five star hotel in Sydney.
There are more than 30,000 people who have applied for asylum seekers status and hardly any of those applications are being processed. The longer it takes, the longer Australia is putting people’s lives at risk whether they’re detained or back in their country.
Don’t believe any of this “stop the boats” bullshit that is spouted by members of the Australian Liberal Party.
Don’t think “but we have too many foreign people already.” We don’t. Australia is so multicultural and that’s what’s makes it so great. Australia should welcome people of all races. But we don’t. In a recent study, one in ten people said they wouldn’t sit next to or near an aboriginal on public transport.
And most of the people from all over the world have come here becuase they choose to be here. Asylum seekers aren’t immigrants. Asylum seekers fear for their lives in their home country.
Don’t be a racist piece of shit.
Don’t believe Tony Abbott because he is scum.
Don’t believe anything that the Department of Immigration tell you because they’re lying pieces of shit.
Don’t support detaining people for escaping their own countries out of fear for their lives.
Don’t support imprisoning children.

Women are well acquainted with thirst
Well, I could eat just about anything
We’d even eat your hate up like love
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
“In the fifth grade I was arrested from school and suspended for a week cause I made blueprints and plans and went through the classrooms stealing all the Goosebumps books. I was successful with three classrooms. The way I did it, every week I came home with a certain amount. I had numbers one through 73. Then I fucking got caught. And I was a little smartass, so I was like, What a coincidence! A black youth getting arrested for wanting to read. So I made a list of everyone I thought snitched on me, who I was going to kill and torture.”
