14.04.16: It is day 26 of the ongoing daily peaceful protest by refugee families in the RPC 3 family compound at the Australian government’s offshore refugee detention camp on Nauru. The refugees are all seeking asylum in Australia and many of them have been waiting for more than two and a half years in hellish conditions for answers from Australian immigration authorities regarding their asylum claims. The protest began on March 20 to coincide with the Palm Sunday “Welcome Refugees” rallies in Australia calling for the closure of the Australian government’s Nauru and Manus Island offshore refugee detention facilities. Today the protesting refugees on Nauru have written an open letter to the people of Australia (pictured above) calling on them to join their protests. Below is an unedited transcript of that letter.
We have sent this message to invite Australian good people to join us everyday at 6 o’clock on Nauru time only for 4 to 5 days, each day 3 to 5 minets and will correlation with us, of protesting and demanding justice.
So please help those seprated families to see each other again and help the children toget a better education, and most important help yourselfs by stoppng your goverment of wasting all of that money in Nauru and P.N.G.
Aussies, if you realy care for human right, you have to help us live in Australia, because we are suffering in Nauru, Nauru is not safe for us.
Aussies, our future is in your hands, we have done nothing wrong. We are people just like you, we want a home and a future too, and peace and safety too.
