It’s been seven days since I wrote my open letter to Malcolm Turnbull and Kelly O’Dwyer without the courtesy of a response or acknowledgment. Did I expect anything? Quite frankly, no.
What I didn’t expect was the overwhelming response by so many of you to my letter which was shared with hundreds of people. I didn’t expect an extract to be published in ‘The Age’ newspaper either.
Thanks everyone for your support – it means a lot.
Meanwhile the young man I met last week still languishes with no end to his detention in sight, along with all the others on Manus Island.
So what’s next?
I will follow-up with Kelly and Malcolm today seeking an answer to my question, “What are you going to do about releasing all 850 odd asylum seekers on Manus Island and when?”
In the meantime, why don’t you write a letter to your Member of Parliament? Just ask the same question too.
