You can do something to lead those who have the power to help those people to see beyond the statistics … to the human beings whose suffering can be alleviated.

WE’LL PROVIDE THE INFORMATION & THE INSPIRATION & if
YOU CAN 
WRITE A FEW SENTENCES FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF A REFUGEE
NAME HIM/HER AFTER A POLITICIAN
& THEN EMAIL THAT POLITICIAN WITH YOUR EMPATHETIC SENTENCES

YOU COULD HELP BRING ABOUT THE CHANGE THAT’S NEEDED

IT’S TIME TO MAKE THE POLITICIANS TRULY UNDERSTAND

Where we are born and to whom is completely out of our control.
If we grow up in poverty, oppression or war, that is not what we have chosen nor what we deserve.
And so … if we are lucky enough to find ourselves with any kind of privilege, freedom or resources, we are obligated to recognise that and do what we can for those who have been unfortunate enough to find themselves living very different lives to our own.

We are all human beings.

We share the need to feel safe; to have access to basic amenities, nourishment and education; to provide for ourselves and our families and to have the freedom of our own thoughts and beliefs.

Sometimes we can put energy and time into changing our circumstances but in dire situations, we hope that we will be supported in doing so.
By people who understand that, thanks to the random nature of human existence, “that could so easily be me”.

So PLEASE  visit the READ, WRITE and SEND pages

and in 10-15 minutes, you will have been proactive on an issue so vital that lives are being lost or permanently impaired every day.

EMAIL EMPATHY
and encourage as many other people as possible to do the same

The only life he has known is guards shouting, steel fences, and unending imprisonment. In a place where he’s called by a number, not even his name. Gabby Sutherland, a former teacher who worked on …

Children dying on Nauru, men dead on Manus … but keep 1,600 in offshore hellholes

“Forgive me for not congratulating you all for being less racist than a Nazi while children are being tortured.” Senator Nick McKim could easily find the tragic irony in yesterday’s bipartisan disapproval in parliament of Fraser Anning’s “final solution” maiden speech. The Greens Senator spoke yesterday in parliament about the reality of indefinite offshore detention …
