There are over 65 MILLION PEOPLE SEEKING ASYLUM OR REFUGEES IN THE WORLD a United Nations reports for the year 2015 show.
A message from the former Prime Minister, Late Malcolm Fraser who died earlier this year, is very relevant in the post-election Australia
“The asylum seeker debate in Australia is demeaning and miserable the politicians who participate in it have contempt for the Australian people. They believe, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that if they appeal to the fearful and mean sides of our nature, they will win support. They are showing that they believe we won’t know enough about the world to know that for the most part what they are saying is plainly false.”
Mr. Fraser was the patron of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, Melbourne and also a past President of Care Australia. He has never held back on condemning the present policies of government on asylum seekers.
