Featured this week: MANDATORY DETENTION - A POLICY BASED ON LIES

The Australian government's policy of mandatory detention of asylum
seekers who arrive in Australia without authorisation has been supported
by both Labor and Coalition governments since it was first introduced in
1992. Green Left Weekly exposes the lies that this policy is based upon.
