    Roof Top Refugees in OZ

    I once knew someone from Singleton who said that when they had them at Singleton they refused to get off the bus protesting conditions there, one demand he told me included Pert shampoo, anyway they carried on about the accommodation which our own soldiers used. Initially all the locals up there were sympathetic and tried to help out but when seeing the ingratitude their opinions changed.

    The latest is this:
    Eleven detainees had been on a rooftop at the Sydney detention centre since Monday, when a detainee jumped to his death.

    The protesters had set 5pm (AEST) today as a deadline, threatening to jump if they did not win a review of their cases.

    Some had cut themselves. Two of the men are believed to have collapsed from dehydration while four others have cut themselves. All of the men on the rooftop have exhausted the application process for asylum status in Australia and are facing deportation to their countries of origin; in other words they were not deemed genuine refugees. In an open letter, issued by the Refugee Action Coalition, the protesters demanded the government rethink their cases.

    Meanwhile, a meeting reportedly was taking place between Immigration Department officials and a delegation of asylum seekers in an attempt to end the stand-off.

    Fights had broken out on the roof, with one of the 11 detainees standing on the edge and threatening to jump.

    He was physically restrained by his fellow protesters

    Ahead of the deadline, two of the detainees, an Iraqi and an Iranian, descended from the roof.

    The eight remaining detainees staging the roof-top protest ended their 29-hour stand-off following negotiations with officials from the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) to review their case.

    Activists outside the centre cheered as the last asylum-seeker waved and disappeared over the side of the roof and was taken down in a crane.

    Then this new demonstration of nine Chinese nationals, reportedly including a 4 month pregnant woman, comes only hours after a group of 11 detainees ended a 30-hour rooftop protest late last night.

    Aged between 20 and 27 years old, and from Fujian province, they had been in Australia about six months and entered the country on student and tourist visas, the interpreter said.

    They wanted refugee protection visas, and were threatening to jump off the roof if their demands were not met by tonight, but did not specify a time.
    Sixteen Iranian and Kurdish asylum seekers are also staging a hunger strike at the centre to protest against their possible deportation.

    A spokeswoman for Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital said three of the men, who were admitted four days after they stopped eating, were in a stable condition this morning.




    They came here illegally in the first place disobeying our laws now they are doing it again

    Do we really want people acting like this as citizens?

    They are threatening us can you believe it!

    If this was happening in China or any Asian country they would probably be dragged or maybe even shot down, but it probably would never happen in the first place because they know it would get them nowhere.

    However here the media jumps all over it and we cave in to their demands for a review no wonder more are doing it!

    One of the women on the roof who is threatening to jump even has a child and is indicating she is willing to kill her own unborn child if she does not get what she wants

    .

    I have always thought that these refugee centres should actually not be on land but at sea on a converted flat bottomed ship.
    Anchored in territorial waters the scumbags on there would suffer paroxims of sea sickness as the ship bobbed about and groaned under heavy seas.

    They should be informed that at any time they wish a return ticket to their country of origin would be issued free of charge,and they would be escorted withinn 24 hours to the airport for repatriation.

    They should be kept on board ship for about two years until their case is heard which would then be adjourned for another two years.......im sure those heavy seas would change their minds.

    I don’t think they would be doing this in Nauru

    In the past they have deliberately set alight their boats alight as they see our Navy so we have to take them



    http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/west...-1225785616696

    And they were granted permanent residency after it was found to be deliberately lit by one or more of the asylum-seekers, which killed five of their own people by doing it

    Here’s video:

    Detention unrest spreads to Curtin


    There has been an asylum seekers protests at the Curtin Immigration Detention Centre near Derby.
    There has been a protest among asylum seekers at the Curtin Immigration Detention Centre near Derby in Western Australia's Kimberley region.
    The Immigration Department says 100 people gathered in a common area of the centre and for the non-violent protest.
    The protest comes after a week of unrest at the Christmas Island Detention Centre.
    In January, detainees at the Curtin facility engaged in a fortnight-long hunger strike and there were reports some had to be hospitalised.
    Meanwhile, the Federal Government and the Opposition have both backed the Australian Federal Police (AFP), who used tear gas for a second time to control protests at the Christmas Island detention centre overnight.
    The Government says the detainees threw rocks at police during the protest, and the AFP says some of them were carrying improvised weapons. Police used tear gas to dispel them.
    Immigration Minister Chris Bowen says some of the detainees organising the protests could face charges.
    "At the appropriate time the Australian Federal Police will complete an investigation," he said.
    He says it is up to police to decide the appropriate use of force.
    The Opposition's immigration spokesman Scott Morrison agrees.
    "I don't think it's helpful for politicians to be second guessing those decisions," he said.
    But he says the Government's border protection policies are responsible for the riots, and the detainees involved should face sanctions.

    Asylum-seeker ringleaders taken offshore

    MORE Australian Federal Police flew into Christmas Island yesterday in an attempt to end five days of rioting and escapes, as the Immigration Department prepared to remove more ringleaders to the mainland.
    Immigration Minister Chris Bowen yesterday conceded there were "continuing tensions and pressures" at the crowded immigration detention centre, which now holds about 1900 men.
    There was more rioting on Monday night when detainees set fire to property and smashed CCTV equipment.
    The AFP -- which now has about 100 additional officers on the island -- acknowledged that its organisational response group used 12-gauge launched impact or beanbag munitions, a non-lethal form of "rubber bullets", as well as teargas during a rescue of guards in the centre in the early hours of yesterday.
    In that incident, about 11 detainees earmarked as troublemakers were taken under guard to the high-security Red Block, and hundreds of other detainees protested, throwing things at the building and damaging it.
    Guards working for government contractor Serco barricaded themselves in.
    The AFP described the situation, in which about 300 detainees were rioting and throwing things at guards, as high risk and an emergency.
    The Immigration Department has shifted two men -- an Iraqi and an Iranian -- to Villawood Detention Centre in Sydney as a result of their roles in the unrest.
    Today, the department plans to fly two plane-loads of detainees who are thought to be central to the violence in recent days, to detention in Darwin and another mainland centre.
    The Australian has been told the Gillard government plans to move up to 600 detainees to the mainland over the next fortnight.

    OUT OF BOUNDS: Escaped asylum seekers celebrate their temporary freedom on Christmas Island.

    I say let them jump or starve themselves to death. It could be a deterrent to more of them coming.

    Australian Politicians need to grow a set of balls and withdraw from the UN Refugee Charter.

    According to that piece of **** charter these animals have the right to seek refuge in Australia, of course a majority of them are not refugees at all and simply seeking a fast track to the land of welfare.

    Withdraw from it and take away their rights entirely, it also doesn't help that the Australian High Court likes to grant these animals asylum when they are turned down.

    If a Political Party ever runs on the idea of withdrawing from this charter they would win with a landslide.
    I grew up on a belief of honour, courage and the old world values. The world isn't about that anymore, preferring to die a slow death of fast food and cheap thrills.

    Christmas Island detention centre burns in protest

    Parts of the main Christmas Island detention centre burnt as protests by 250 asylum seekers turned violent last night.
    Meanwhile, a 20 year old Afghan man has died overnight in the Scherger centre in Queensland. An immigration spokeswoman said the man was discovered in his bed by Serco staff and could not be revived. Police will investigate the death.
    Australian Federal Police have taken over control of the Christmas Island detention centre, an immigration spokesman said.
    The Christmas Island fire brigade was called to respond last night but, because of safety concerns for officers, did not work inside the detention centre perimeter fence and the fire was allowed to burn out, the spokesman said.
    About 280 detainees - not associated with the violence - had to be moved from the North West detention centre to a recreation hall and to Phosphate Hill for their safety during the violence, which lasted until just after midnight.
    "Many detainees have moved away from the troublemakers," a department spokesman said.
    The damage to the detention centre is expected to be "substantial", he said.
    The violence started when a group of 250 detainees marched towards a police line at the perimeter fence last night, and from 8pm local time began throwing rocks and lit fires.
    It is the third major incident this week.
    The Australian Federal Police has deployed 118 officers to the island to deal with detention centre unrest and breakouts.
    The Australian Human Rights Commission said it was disturbed by the repeated use of tear-gas, which follows the use of "beanbag" bullets on Sunday.
    The commissioner, Catherine Branson, said the situation in immigration detention centres was deteriorating and there was an urgent need to reconsider mandatory detention.
    The Immigration Minister, Chris Bowen, said rocks were thrown at police in the latest protest on Wednesday night.
    A police spokesman said tear-gas was used when "250 protesters, some of whom were armed with improvised weapons, advanced … after a series of repeated warnings to disperse were ignored".
    Serco staff and some detainees "took refuge" in the front reception during the incident, the spokesman said.
    An Immigration Department spokesman said "at no time" were staff exposed to danger, "although some staff and clients were relocated for a short period of time until the protesters' intentions were known".
    The protesters had marched within the main detention centre grounds carrying two banners, one reading "Freedom", and then marched back inside the centre and sat down before dispersing about an hour later at 9.35pm, the department spokesman said.
    Two small fires were lit in wheelie bins in a grassed area of the centre. "This fire caused no damage," the department spokesman said.
    Ian Rintoul, of the Refugee Action Coalition, said the protesting detainees were attempting to speak to the media during the "peaceful" protest and the police use of tear-gas was "heavy handed".
    About 100 detainees were flown to the Darwin detention centre on Wednesday, but Mr Bowen said protest organisers were not among the group moved, and the government would not reward "rabble rousing".
    Christmas Island residents have been told 600 detainees would be moved off the island in the next fortnight.
    "The people who've been moved off Christmas Island are a combination of those who've been there the longest, people who have already been accepted as refugees but are just waiting for some final clearances, and those who are particularly emotionally vulnerable," Mr Bowen said.
    A protest involving 100 detainees was held at the Curtin detention centre in Western Australia yesterday, and Mr Rintoul said the protests were likely to continue unless long processing delays for visas were remedied.
    Ms Branson said it was "particularly concerning that there are hundreds of people who have already been recognised as refugees but are still being held in detention while waiting for security clearances".
    A blowout in ASIO processing security clearances has been blamed as a bottleneck.
    Opposition Leader Tony Abbott said: "I very much regret the necessity for the use of these kinds of very vigorous measures to control unrest on Christmas Island. But this is the inevitable consequence of the government pursuing the wrong policies."
    Another boat carrying 145 asylum seekers was intercepted yesterday, which opposition immigration spokesman Scott Morrison said was the largest in a year.
    "These latest arrivals will further fuel overcrowding and assessment delays as the system is further overwhelmed and collapses under the weight of the government's border protection policy failures," he said.
