STOP THE POLITICS OF FEAR
BRING THEM HERE
LET THEM STAY
JOIN THE PEAK HOUR PROTEST OUTSIDE DUTTON’S ELECTORAL OFFICE
When & where:
7 -9am, Wednesday, 27th February, at 199 Gympie Rd, Strathpine.
Peter Dutton and the federal government are engaging in the politics of fear. They’re trying to win the next election by whipping up fear about the Medical Treatment Bill and are making hysterical claims about the bill undermining border control and giving paedophiles, rapists and murderers an open door.
But Malcolm Turnbull told Donald Trump something completely different. He said :”We know exactly who they are. They have been on Nauru or Manus for over three years and the only reason we cannot let them into Australia is because of our commitment to not allow people to come by boat. Otherwise we would have let them in. If they had arrived by airplane and with a tourist visa then they would be here.”
The Medical Treatment Bill was necessary because of the systemic medical neglect of the people detained offshore. Hamid Khazaei died because a bureaucrat overruled a doctor’s order to have him immediately evacuated. The Australian Medical Association supported the bill saying “urgent action is needed” and that this was “a health and human rights issue of the highest order”.
It’s time to stop playing politics with people’s lives. BRING THEM HERE, LET THEM STAY.
