Department of Immigration ends ‘inappropriate’ outings for children in detention run by nuns

 

Lament my country for you are no longer the land of the young and the free.
Lament my country for your silence will not drown out the cries of those in detention for no crime other than seeking asylum.
Lament my country for this Christmas the songs of angels have been deemed not appropriate by the powers of the empire.
Lament my country for you are no longer governed by integrity or justice
Lament my country for your heart is bleeding with grief and fear of what you have become
Lament my country.
