1/ The President of the United States is systematically dismantling all the institutions we built after WWII to maintain the world order we created.

#Abdication
2/ #NATO, the UN, the WTO, the IMF, World Bank, and our trade agreements are mechanisms for us to have a say in what other countries do. They are tools of our power but they come at a cost.

We cannot just do whatever we want without consulting others and in some cases it costs $
3/ Our modern #empire is dependent upon the US Dollar and US military power. First let's talk about the $USD.

By FAR our most powerful tool, it is based on our political and economic stability. While even DJT can't destroy our economy, he is straining our political stability.

1/12 #APEC media: Australia paid many $Billions to private companies #IHMS & #PIH to provide limited medical services to #Manus refugees for 5+ years. Nothing to upgrade Manus Island Lorengau Hospital that’s a run-down, little provincial hospital servicing an entire community.
2/12 When #Manus refugees need X-rays, scans, dental treatment, surgery, emergency services, in-patient or out-of-hours services, they are sent to #Lorengau Hospital. This strains the already overburdened island health service. #APEC has triggered a Manus health services crisis.
3/12 While 5 critically ill refugees remain, PIH hospital Port Moresby discharged all PNG patients & cancelled dozens of sick refugees’ treatment. PIH/Australia refugee contract conflicts with preferred #APEC provider role. Dozens of sick refugees were forced to return to #Manus.

1/4 14 men were forced from Port Moresby back to #Manus today by police & immigration. We believe 50 sick men total will go back because PIH Hospital has a contract to be health provider to APEC. PIH is sending us back because of contract to treat APEC delegates & workers.
2/4 #JDA said sick men may return to Pom from #Manus & be treated by #PIH in a month. We have also been told that there will be no medical treatment in Port Moresby for us until next year.
3/4 We are suffering mentally very much. It is 1 year since the #Manus Lombrum Blockade. We suffered trauma because of the cruelty & attacks upon us. Many men feel no hope. 3 men tried to kill themselves in last 24 hours. We saved them.

1/4. JDA told 35 very sick men in Granville Motel, Port Moresby, to go back to Manus because of #APEC. Our medical treatment will stop for 1 month until APEC finishes.
In the last 2 weeks #JDA told 35 sick men to agree to return to #Manus be forced back by armed police at 2am
2/4. Yesterday Sandra Furphy said to 15 of the men on her list, 'are you ready to go back #Manus or not? If not maybe something bad will happen and police will come at 2 o'clock in the morning for you. It's better you go back Manus, so it's not forced.'
3/4. Some #Manus men on her list have been very sick for a long time who always need to be near hospital and doctors. Other the sick men on the list only arrived in last few weeks for urgent treatment and some are still waiting for treatment to start.
