The report that the Australian Government relies on to declare that no one from Sri Lanka could possibly be a refugee or in any danger there is based completely on unsourced assertions and statements that seem to fly in the face of every other, actually reputable, report (surprise surprise). This shit needs to be revoked so Sri Lankan asylum seekers can actually have their claims processed fairly (although Australia’s system is so garbage that that’d only be the beginning).

A sobering read about the hardline anti-refugee policies maintained by Denmark’s “social democratic” government. There are a lot of parallels to the awful situation in Australia too, where our Labor Party has adopted similarly cruel refugee policies in response to One Nation’s rise in certain marginal seats 🙄
