Refugee success

In recent years we have been getting a diet designed to diminish, denigrate and demonise asylum-seekers and refugees.

We have lost a sense of proportion and the enormous contribution which refugees have made to this country.

I have set out below links to information and articles which describe the remarkable way in which we have accepted refugees in the past and the way that they have helped build Australia. It is a thrilling story. These links are provided courtesy of the Refugee Council of Australia. Some of the information may be a few years old but the stories are current. John Menadue
