In one hundred years time
people will look on the cruelty and injustice of Nauru, Manus Island and other refugee camps in Australia and ask why.
Why did we allow families to be torn apart?
Why did we make children to live for years behind bars?
Why did we put women and girls in situations of sexual violence?
Why did we deport men and women back to places of danger and death?
Why did we force human beings to live in such fear, hopelessness and despair?
Inspire us God of Justice to take action against Australia's treatment of refugees, to pray for a change of heart in our policy makers, to speak of love and compassion for all.
