As Christmas approaches and we celebrate the coming into the world of the baby Jesus, Son of the Living God, our hearts are torn by the plight of Ranjini, her children, her soon to be born baby and her husband, alone and away from his precious family. We cannot tolerate an immigration policy that robs people of their right to justice and the opportunity to appeal their imprisonment and plead their case for asylum and freedom. If government robs our nation of its heart, makes a mockery of its justice and destroys hope for a fair chance at life for children and new born babies, what sort of nation can we ever claim to be? What politician would ever want their name attached to a government like that? Please give Ranjini and her children their freedom quickly before any more damage is done to their minds and hearts and bodies and to the reputation of our nation.
We want to be proud, not ashamed, to call ourselves Australians.
