The Australian government's policy to 'turn back the boats' and condemn asylum seekers to indefinite detention is an open and weeping sore. Government standing is undermined. Australia is condemned internationally. Over and over, Tony Abbott proclaims that the only measure of accountability is that the boats have been stopped, even when the price is physical and sexual abuse, profound psychological damage and death in detention centres. And on the sea, return to the dangers that so many have risked everything to escape. How do we stand by and allow this to happen? Why aren't we all marching in the streets? How has the government so skewed the argument that the most needy, courageous and desperate people have become demonised?
