July 2018: Nauru has become Australia’s devil’s island

Nauru is the never-ending nightmare for children and their parents who sought asylum in Australia in the hope of a better life. Now they are imprisoned by an ocean, with no prospect of leaving unless they take a government bribe to go back into the state of persecution they fled. Even the youngest of children face a life sentence without hope, with papers stamped ‘Never to come to Australia…no matter what’. As Australia demonstrates its inhumanity to the outside world, internally more and more commentators are warning that we are turning into a police state. Civil liberties people have been sounding the alarm for more than a decade, but now an eminent judge and a close observer of the Australian Parliament are speaking out too.

Also in this issue:

  • Australia’s special troops endanger national security
  • Vets’ health and mental health suffering grows
  • MPs have 20 cents each way on guns
  • Parliament asked to ban ‘unpleasant’ clothing
  • Secular law tabled to remove religious concessions
  • ‘You’re fired! Too much Trumping!’
  • 100 people a day die by guns in the USA
