“[Statement released by refugees on Nauru 3 November 2012]
Asylum seekers Nauru
To whom it may concern
The government of Australia and human rights
There is a big difference between criminal and asylum seekers, but the Australian does not take care of the difference between asylums seekers of Nauru camp, Darwin and curtain camp, are treated differently.
As a human being in this critical condition, we are not being given the fair treatment , which affect us physically and mentally. This bitter reality torture us 24 hours means all days. In our home land we were in a danger of being tortured physically, but here we are facing mental tortured which are effecting us mentally.
All these sorrowful information have been provided to world through telephone, mails and email but haven’t been given any response.
Today we all got together to declare that we will continue our gathering until getting our rights. The following are our demands.
1) The most important appeal is that if Australian Government should have attention to our cases and take us back to Australia.
2) We request the Australia Government to visits us and see us in bad condition of our lives.
3) Close the Nauru detention center.
4) We accept Australia as a democratic country, where people are being treated equally and as a human being, we expect the same treatment.
At last we want to thanks people who help us …”
