If you’re just tuning in to #auspol, let me catch you up on the high-stakes poker game the Govt and Opp have going here:

Coalition has a choice: prevent Labor & x-bench amended bill that would get #kidsoffnauru from reaching the Reps for a vote (which it would likely lose) – but in doing so also prevent final passage of #aabill (#encryption).
At the moment, parliamentary procedures are being used in Senate by Coalition, Bernardi & Hanson to delay getting to point where #kidsoffnauru amendments are voted on. Some filibustering going on, though Senate President is trying to curtail it.

Manoeuvering in the parliament this morning is all about timing…..

Here’s an explanation of what’s going on. Stay with me:
#Encryption bill: Govt & Opp agreed to a plan to pass bill unamended through Reps, amend in Senate once Labor double-checked them, then back to Reps to sign off on changes.
Nauru: Senate expected to agree to amendments to a migration-related bill that would mirror the Phelps #kidsoffnauru bill details, which would then need to go to Reps for a vote, too.

Australians who fought for #KidsOffNauru, I humbly suggest you consider the following in your next moves. Thread.
1. They're being moved to another prison - see this testimony from @femmocollective. I've visited detention centers, she is right.…
2. We can't rely on a perception of children as innocent victims. This tends to leaves untouched the perception that adult asylum seekers are criminals. Many Australians who support getting #KidsOffNauru still want asylum seekers to be punished.
