A time for lament

Recently, Chris Sidoti, the past Australian Human Rights Commissioner, lawyer, advocate, educator and activist, spoke at our church on the future of human rights in Australia. He spoke passionately about the shocking record of the last ten years when we have gone from “best practice” on issues of international treaties in the eyes of the world to a position of shame and ridicule internationally. This is due mainly to our record on those who seek asylum in this country and arrive here by sea.
