Scott Morrison and the election are frauds. He has never governed in the public interest and took the position in a party room coup. The government spawned from this is illegitimate. It claims legal authority, but due to the nature of its birth, it has no moral authority.
Power takes many forms. We can attain charismatic power through merit, or through wisdom and great deeds. This government has none. By its actions preceding the election it has demonstrated complete contempt for Australians. This is unforgivable and unacceptable.
Dismissing parliament and avoiding scrutiny, perpetuating falsehoods (death tax, retiree tax), saturation on social media, colluding with the extreme right, peddling racism, seeking preferences from Clive and Pauline, denying climate science, any one of which is unforgivable.

THREAD: I have been having some of the most heartbreaking conversations of my life with men on #Manus who see the Morrison Government's reelection as a death warrant.

"When there is no hope or light in life for the individual that makes the life completely different." #auspol
These men are saying that things are extremely bad. People are despairing. My friend tells me that people are self-harming with razor blades, overdosing and attempting suicide - they have lost so much hope.
They are scared that the media have stopped reporting what's happening. He says there were multiple incidents today alone.

"No one in this world can not imagine how bad and serious is."

See thread. #Typhoid vaccination #Manus
1. Australia's recommendations re #Typhoid: PNG is known as a region with a high incidence of typhoid.
Aus govt recommends typhoid revaccination
3 years after a 3-dose course, or 5 years after a 4-dose course.
immunisationhandbook.health.gov.au/vaccine-preven…
2. Why are refugees & asylum seekers who #Australia forcibly sent to #Manus becoming infected with #Typhoid?
Australia knows that in PNG 'Typhoid fever has moderate to high incidence, and high mortality'.
Are refugees & asylum seekers revaccinated as recommended by Australia?
3. Whether men were vaccinated with 2x3 yearly doses or 1x5 yearly dose, #typhoid revaccination fell due during #PIH tenure.
Did PIH revaccinate the men in #Manus camps?
PIH received $21.5m over 10 months to provide healthcare in the #Manus camp small clinic.
PIH Negligence?

Using G4S to force #Manus refugees to move is dangerous & provocative.
G4S had not been involved in Manus camps since they attacked refugees in 2014. Then G4S was contracted to run the detention camp on Manus.
In February 2014, G4S employees & others attacked refugees.
1/
Feb 2014 continued: At that time, PNG mobile police squad pushed over the perimeter fence, entered Mike compound & fired shots within the accommodation blocks. G4S personnel followed the police into the Mike compound & started bashing
detainees. 2/
In February 2014, during three days of attacks on the refugees by #G4S staff, local citizens & the PNG mobile police squad, 69 #Manus detainees were injured, some of them seriously, and an Iranian asylum seeker, Reza Barati, was killed. 3/

I'm doing an epic thread on the FACTS on the #MedeVacBill to bust all the myths being spread by the #Morrison Government. RT's are so appreciated. Here we go. #auspol #manus #nauru #morrison #dutton
MYTH 1: Two doctors will decide if someone is transferred

FACT 1: Actually 11 doctors decide this incl. an Independent Medical Panel that makes final medical recommendation made up of 9 doctors that incl. Surgeon General of Border Force, Home Affairs & C/w Chief Medical Officer
MYTH 2: The #MedeVacBill will encourage people to seeking #asylum by boat

FACT 2: The bill only applies to people seeking asylum on Manus & Nauru as of 13th Feb 2019 (& children born to them), anyone who arrives thereafter is not eligible for medical evacuation under this bill.

What's the connection between Paladin and Scott Morrison or Peter Dutton?

At the top of Paladin's website is a group of links to other businesses connected to Paladin. All have David Hodgson - founder of Paladin - involved in some way, either as founder or similar.
#auspol
One link ASP Movement 'All Shall Prosper' are about universal prosperity.
Universal prosperity is a foundation principle of churches like Hillsong.
Who is David Hodgson?
A white man, was a member of the Rhodesian army, then became a mercenary.
Converted to christianity after attending an evangelist tour.

*side note: evangelists, like TV evangelists were the precursors to prosperity churches, inventing prosperity church

An epic thread. RT’s appreciated 🙏🏼

Debunking all the lies by #Dutton that medical transfer of sick refugees from #Manus and #Nauru to Australia poses a national security risk to Australia. #BackTheBill

I’ll go one by one through all of Dutton’s lies in plain English now:
LIE: This would be first time refugees brought from offshore without ASIO clearance to Australia.

FACT: Of the 810 sick refugees already brought to Oz under LNP Gov almost none have had ASIO clearance, most brought here by court orders within a few days and without incident.
LIE: Oz Gov would have no control over sick refugees brought here on medical advice

FACT: All would be placed in community detention which can range from guards outside a hospital room (standard practice) to being held in actual detention centre. It’s solely the Ministers call.

Is anyone going to say it? Sydney to Hobart yacht race epitomizes white male privilege. Why don’t you yachtsman do something with real courage and USEFULNESS: why don’t you race to Manus & Nauru and pick up the innocent people suffering from Australian torture for 6 years?
Okay sailors with boats, here is an opportunity. Never mind the Sydney to Hobart, make yourself useful #Manus2019
Situation on Manus is catastrophic. Behrouz just posted 😩😢

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.

1/3 URGENT Please help us.
At 4am tonight and tomorrow night they will come & take sick refugees to #Manus from Port Moresby.
There is a new list of about 30 names.
Immigration said that they will come with about 100 police.
They were very violent on Friday.
2/3 Early Friday morning, 17 cars brought police, navy & immigration to violently force 16 men from their beds & escort to the airport. One man was hurt so badly he couldn't go to #Manus & is still in hospital, seriously injured.
Don't let them attack us again.
3/3 Men who are very sick are also now very afraid because in a few hours 100 police will come.
We are remembering when they attacked us in Lombrum #Manus. It is the same.
Please pray for us.

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.

"Please, if you are reading this, tell the Australian Government that we need urgent medical care for our brother Abdi. This is his knee broken since Friday, still no medical care."

Via ManusAlert on Telegram (1/n)
"Abdi, a Somalian man, was playing soccer on the ELRTC soccer field at 6:00pm on Friday,27/7/18, when he collided with another man. Nothing has been done to help fix Abdi’s broken knee because there are not proper medical facilities to treat us."

Via ManusAlert Telegram #Manus
"He can’t sleep, can’t sit well, and no staff care about him.
Because the accident was late & the hospital has no doctor at night and because the PIH clinic is closed then too, he could not have any treatment on Friday night."

@SarahRubyWrites @jokowi In theory, Indonesia is responsible.
(#IDG=Indo immigration dept)
However, Indonesia is the 3rd country, with #Manus & #Nauru, that Australia pays to use refugees as 'rocks to block the sea'.
Aus pays #IOM to run refugee community housing & 13 detention centres in #Indonesia.
@SarahRubyWrites @jokowi #UNHCR Indonesia received less & less funding, none this year, to process refugees in Indonesia for resettlement.
Australia took this 'humanitarian aid' & gave it to #IOM to detain refugees to force voluntary returns.
Now IOM had funding cut, new refugees sleeping in streets.
@SarahRubyWrites @jokowi So big backlog of asylum seekers awaiting UNHCR processing due to no funds.
No new admissions to #IOM or even detention in Indonesia since April 2018.
Refugees queue to get IN to detention, live in streets outside IDC's. No money, no accommodation, live on handouts.
