eri's political rant

ok, do you know what gets my blood boiling? when people come to australia seeking asylum and the australian government says "oh sorry we have enough people here, let's make you go stay on an island while we process your report and try and work out how much shit you had to go through before you came here". over 90% of asylum seekers who come to australia by boat have genuine need for protection, and now the australian government is putting a suspension on processing new asylum claims by Afghan and Sri Lankan nationals. Grrrr....it's so unfair and makes me really angry. These people need our protection, not alienation!
