To the Sri Lankan Asylum Seekers - I'm Sorry...

To the eighty eight Sri Lankans on the ship currently detained by Indonesian authorities and being prevented to travel to New Zealand,
I'm sorry.
I witnessed this country's Prime Minister say on television that you are not welcome here.
He showed a total lack of compassion and I'm disgusted with his arrogant stance on this humanitarian matter.
There are many in this country who are saddened by your situation and sympathetic to your plight.
I hope you find a safe haven where you are welcome...

  1. For whom is the bell tolling? Today's 'I'm alright Jack' may himself, tomorrow, be hoping for some compassion from his brothers; as we sow so shall we reap!
