At a cost of about $800,000 per person per year, the Australian tax payer is paying to keep over a thousand people in the most appalling conditions... in a cage... on a tropical island... after confiscating their medicine... after confiscating their glasses and walking sticks. We even take their false teeth and prosthetic limbs.
The footage in the link below was taken this month (Jan 2015) on Manus Island. It's time to stop wasting hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer money on years-long torturous detention of people who have come seeking our help.
If you support the LNP's "Strong Plan" to detain asylum seekers indefinitely, then you should watch this video and see what your tax dollars are going towards. It's nothing to be proud of.
If you would like to see this situation change, share this, and tell the Minister responsible what you think. Perhaps even asking him where those millions of dollars are actually going, because it sure don't look like it's being spent on these people.
