Nauru: the horrific war on refugee women

Occupation_immi

 
With news coming through that Immigration Minister Peter Dutton today said that ‘the federal government would not be “blackmailed” into allowing pregnant asylum seekers at Nauru’s detention centre into Australia for medical treatment’, I revisited Ian Rintoul’s article on the war on refugee women on Nauru. Writing a week ago in the magazine of the revolutionary socialist organisation Solidarity, Ian says, among other things:

‘The shocking ABC 7.30 story highlighted just two rapes of Somali women. There are many more. Women freed to live in the community are now the victims of a reign of terror supported by the policies of the Australian and Nauruan governments. There were serious illusions that new Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull would at least modify offshore processing—but the gloss is quickly wearing off… Nauru is not even a gilded cage—it is a house of horrors. Both Manus and Nauru must be closed.’

Then I suggest that more pressure needs to be applied to the UN to stop conflicts in countries of origin. But I think we know that the UN’s agenda is to redistribute populations and wealth across the world by any means at its disposal, in order to achieve the global corporate neo-communist plan in which the Trans Pacific Partnership plays a major role.

It is a plan to financially smash small to average people throughout the world, while the rich live high on the hog. Migrants and asylum seekers are being used to reduce Australian wages and working conditions. This will return more profits to Big Business which plans to take over every possible service and government responsibility, and those who cannot afford to pay the enormous price will be left to die in the streets.

Be prepared to kiss goodbye to our national sovereignty as the Australian economy winds down, the states are abolished and amalgamated councils are minimally empowered.

Say a final farewell to small business people who will be wiped out because they cannot compete.
