'They are afraid for their children'

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Darwin Asylum Seeker Support and Advocacy Network (DASSAN) visitors are meeting asylum seeker mothers who do not know if they and their families may be deported by force in the middle of the night to Nauru or Manus Island. Mothers have heard of the reports of violence on Manus, the risk of malaria on Manus and substandard living conditions on Nauru – they are afraid for their children, writes network member EMMA MURPHY.

 

Asylum seeker led recovery for Alice: businessman's proposal

 

 

 

 

 

Give half a billion dollars to Alice Springs instead of a billion to Nauru.

That's the way to fix Australia's dilemma about offshore processing, according to ex FICA CEO and local businessman Paul Lelliott (pictured).
He asked MHR Warren Snowdon to take the idea "as far as you can.
"There is considerable humanitarian merit in putting forward the case for onshore processing of refugees.
"There is also a significant economic benefit to our region if that processing was to take place in Alice Springs. Forget about pouring money into Malaysia, Christmas Island and Nauru.
"We need the funding and the resultant increase in labor to rebuild this town. We can create our own economic stimulus."

A new migration program for the Darwin region to help employers fill skills and labour shortages associated with major projects has now been announced.
