#LadyCilento @PeterDuttonMP How low can you go?

This tale has two sides. Pride in a nation, & disdain for its bereft representation. A little baby named Asha is in this tug of war. The innocent child blissfully unaware of her participation. Doctors nurses and their colleagues have stood tall to stop the govt from sending baby Asha from safety to a place where there is historically no guarantees or reassuring stories. Surely there are better things to do with our nation's resources? Border Force under instruction from the Minister Peter Dutton is planning to send back #asylumseekers to Nauru. Asha is one of these people.
The people of Australia's support for the Hospital & Asha makes me feel proud of my country. For a nation so small to trend in the USA on social media shows how much passion my people have for life for fairness & for humanity.
The Govt position is a polar opposite. Its policy is unjustifiable, unfair inhumane and often unlawful. This is one of many reasons I am running for the Senate from Victoria in the 2016 federal election. The government isn't being grilled enough. Or being made accountable for its failures in this domain or several others. I hope to change that.
