I read this article yesterday and wanted to crawl under the bed…it is the story of a very brave Australian mental health nurse who has been working on Manus Island who defied gag clauses to talk to the New York Times.
I’ve been ashamed of my country when travelling before. The Howard years, sucking up to Bush and refusing to say sorry to Indigenous Australians, Tampa the list is long. The misogyny of Tony Abbott and his crew of neanderthals.
We are in a very dark place – when in our name – Turnbull, Dutton and I’m not letting the Labour party off the hook here, are aloud to continue treating people fleeing from harm in this inhumane way.
