Oh wow! This is brilliant. But as the second youngest of nine kids, there was no 'refusing to eat' for me... I had to be quick before someone else ate my food!

Bethany Baynie totes would have done this for you if I had any artistic ability, instead you just got hidden veg puree :)

Susan Wong bet the boys still wouldnt eat it 🙄

"From the age of seven, when I came here, I have been stuck. I had so many dreams but they have all blown away." In Nauru, a 12-year-old boy begs for medical care for his brother and mother. She is suicidal, forced to wear nappies for incontinence, and has been repeatedly recommended for urgent medical transfer. 14 months on, there is no immediate plan to move her. ...

I am ashamed to be an Australian and I am ashamed of our government for for not helping the refugees who have asked for our help. 😥

It's a total disgrace that this child and many others live like this. I hate our government. I can't WAIT TO VOTE YOU OUT.

Why is this happening to me? Because Malcolm Turdcoat's evil Libtard Party seeks to profit politically from this insenate cruelty

Murderers are better treated in our jails. And they receive adequate medical treatment.

It’s called get a visa.

I don’t understand how that religious fanatic from Iran who shot and killed people in a terrorist attack (Martin Place shooting) was given asylum even though the government of Iran (corrupt af) warned the Australian government that this person was dangerous and wanted for crimes in Iran. And yet, these people with no criminal background with no danger to society are being treated like this. Why tho? These people are literally escaping the one you gave asylum to and you refuse to let THEM in? I don’t get it 😕
