Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)

The Rohingya and the St Louis – a letter in the Canberra Times

This is a letter of mine the Canberra Times published on 21 May 2015.

Rohingya find humanity from ordinary Indonesians

Mitra Salima Suryono in Lhoksukon, Indonesia writes for UNHCR about the basic humanity that ordinary Indonesians have shown to the Rohingya. To read the whole article celebrating humanity click here. After long ordeal at sea, Rohingya find humanity in Indonesia.

The Rohingya and the St Louis

This was the lead letter in the Australian on Tuesday. The comparison between turning back Jews fleeing Nazi Germany and the Rohingya today trapped at sea is brilliant and true.

Rescue the Rohingya refugees

“The Australian government is playing with asylum seekers’ lives,” said Ian Rintoul, from the Refugee Action Coalition. “It is suddenly obvious that offering ‘turnback’ advice to Malaysia and Indonesia cannot save lives at sea, but only endanger them.” “The boats must be welcome in Indonesia and Malaysia, and Australia. Australia must immediately lift its ban on accepting UNHCR refugees from Indonesia and offer Rohingyan refugees safe passage to Australia. An international rescue effort can guarantee that no lives are lost.”
