    Chased away from their land and coastal villages, driven away from their only livelihood. Their only "hope" of feeding their children appears to be to escape to an unknown world. Shame on the rulers of this land.

    how come these guys are still going to aussie by boat ? i think human smugglers are not telling them they gonna endup in papua new guinea. we need to do a mass campaign and educate people here. TV ads dont work anymore. lack of education makes them fall in to traps like this. i assume they dont even know where on earth is papua new guniea and what sort of life people have there.
