Ugly Australians

"The Australian government is responsible for the deliberate and systematic torture of refugees on Nauru and should be held accountable under international law, according to a major new report informed by unprecedented access to the secretive island. Amnesty International said it had interviewed 62 refugees and asylum seekers on Nauru, and more than a dozen current or former contract workers who delivered services on behalf of the Australian government, to compile a report titled Island of Despair." (Australia accused of torture on Nauru, Michael Koziol, Sydney Morning Herald, 18/10/16)

If Turnbull and Shorten can condone the torture of asylum seekers on Nauru, they can also condone the torture of Australian citizens, not to mention the torture of others by so-called friends and allies abroad.
