A hunger strike is underway at the Melbourne Immigration Transit Accommodation detention centre. More than two dozen asylum seekers have been granted refugee status but are being held indefinitely due to negative ASIO (secret police) reports. The refugees say they will refuse food until a solution is reached. Most of these people have been incarcerated for between two and three years. A vigil is on outside the Centre in support of the hunger strikers. The refugees sent the following message to the media on Monday via the Tamil Refugee Council.
