Me quoted in Fairfax papers on tax haven use
Me quoted by Georgia Wilkins in The Age (and other Fairfax publications) today. John Passant, from the school of political science and international relations, at the Australian National University, said the trend noted by Computershare was further evidence multinationals did not take global regulators seriously. ”US companies are doing this on the hard-nosed basis that any [regulatory] changes that will be made won’t have an impact on their ability to avoid tax,” he said. ”They think it is going to take a long time for the G20 to take action, or that they are just all talk.” (1)

Hell on Nauru: shut it down

Internal Department of Immigration reports have confirmed what refugee activists and advocates have been saying for months: Nauru is a torturous hell hole that is destroying the lives of the refugees sent there writes Socialist Alternative.

Labor’s concentration camp on Nauru may soon claim its first life

Omid, the Iranian asylum seeker on Nauru who has now been on hunger strike for 47 days, is rapidly deteriorating. It is likely he will die within the next few days. There are also five other Iranians on their 27th day of a hunger strike and 30 others who joined them last Friday.

Another message from those imprisoned in the Australian concentration camp on Nauru

In short period we have seen asylum attempted suiciding, self-harming, mentally disturbed, stressed, naked themselves, protests and hunger strikes. So what will be result in the future?

We request to the government and people of Australia save our lives and future.

Regards
Asylum seekers on Nauru

Close down Australia’s concentration camp on Nauru

Our task is great. Our struggle is important. To end the criminal refugee policies of our one percent we must build bigger and bigger demonstrations to force Labor to treat asylum seekers humanely and end the death trip it forces them into. While there are the various magnificent refugee groups working brilliantly for asylum seekers there is no significant revolutionary left in Australia that could defend refugees as part of its more general defence of workers and the oppressed.

Now more than ever we need a socialist alternative to give hope to refugees and those who support them and lead a real fight with a long term goal of having tens of thousands of people shutting down the centres of the major cities or striking to close down Australia’s concentration camps.

Please save our lives: Asylum Seekers on Nauru

We Asylum Seekers on Nauru request to the people of Australia to help the Oppressed and helpless asylum seekers in Nauru Hell to help them in shutting down of Nauru. Today on 1/11/2012 we have started hunger strike for unknown time, it is clear that we are dying here on every moment. Please save our lives.

Close down your refugee concentration camps Julia Gillhoward

Labor plans ten years’ detention on Nauru or Manus Island for people who have committed no crime. All they have done is seek asylum.

In the age of truth telling we used to call these types of places concentration camps. It is time for that truth to be told again.

Close down your concentration camps Julia Gillhoward.

Nauru and Malaysia – Labor’s new depths of depravity

There are 4000 refugees in Indonesia. Instead of letting them rot there for many years or risk a dangerous sea journey, we could bring them here safely for processing while they are in the community.

A QANTAS jet holds say 500 people. The Gillard labor Government could charter 8 of them to bring the refugees in Indonesia to Australia. That would save them from the risk of drowning at sea in seeking asylum here.

Not Malaysia, not Nauru: let refugees into Australia

It has to be said: you’ve got a better chance of compassion from the Gillard government if you’re a cow than if you’re a refugee. While conditions in Indonesia are considered too bad for cattle to be exported there, the Australian government has no qualms about the export of human beings to Malaysia, where even […]
