ASYLUM SEEKERS

A group of concerned people is taking an unprecedented step in releasing a video of children behind bars to show the shocking effect of harsh detention policies.
Children locked behind fences and bars because their parents arrived by boat.  “Are we really OK with this?”
Candlelight vigils were held around Australia on Thursday evening after the public learned of the death of Iranian asylum seeker, 24 year old Hamid Kehazaei, who cut his foot on Manus Island and reportedly sought medical help for days but was constantly denied.  This resulted in acute septicemia, and while he was transferred to hospital, he received treatment too late to survive.
