The Sweet Taste of Freedom

There is life beyond the razor wire. A total of 42 children and their families have been released from the immigration detention centres in Australia, so far.

And for those children who were born in prison, this will be their first taste of freedom in the land Down Under.

Indeed, this is a significant development and a clear indication that the Federal Government’s policy of mandatory detention of asylum seekers (and refugees) has outlived its usefulness.

There are cracks in the fabric of policy, so to speak!
