‘I refuse to believe our only choice is between people dying at sea and child abuse.’
Greens MP Adam Bandt summed up the feelings of many Australians in a passionate address on ABC’s Q&A last night.
Mr Bandt said the legacy of Labor’s policies on detention centres have led to the nation’s current appalling situation, where doctors are refusing to send children back to detention centres because it goes against their duty to not cause harm.
“No one wants to see people dying at sea, but I refuse to believe that our only choice is between people dying at sea and child abuse. I refuse to believe that,” he said.
