Following Australia and Papua New Guinea’s decision to close the Manus concentration camp leaving around 600 refugees in limbo, protests have erupted in both countries. The refugees themselves have been holding an indefinite sit in protest. The PNG government has threatened to use force against them. In Australia ongoing protests calling for the refugees to come to Australia have been occurring in many cities (see here, here and here). Bodies such as the Australian Medical Association, the United Nations, and other international organisations have called for an end to the inhumane and cruel refugee policies of the Australian government.
