“Australia celebrated a win over the Japanese whaling program in the International Court of Justice, but Japan still has a few avenues it can pursue if it’s determined to keep hunting, writes Steven Freeland.”
I would not be surprised if Japan kept ‘hunting’.
How can an International Court of Justice rule that our government should stop hounding refugees? I doubt that our government would take any notice.
Maybe I am a bit cynical about this. I wonder all the time how we can make the world a better place. With enough people working towards it, it should be possible. But we are all guilty of just seeing to our own comforts. If a few people are driven to giving up their comforts, does this really help worldwide? The people who act this way are being made ‘outcasts’. And what then? You see, I am awfully cynical about these things. I have certain opinions about this refugee problem and I wished that worldwide a lot more could be done to help all these refugees. I think if I were a refugee I’d rather drown at sea than be kept in a detention centre indefinitely.
we should all take personal responsibility in changing and making a world better.
So many are saying that treating boat people badly will prevent others from even trying to come to Australia, therefore it saves lives. However, treating people badly and inhumanely who have done no wrong in order to achieve an outcome is morally reprehensible and totally wrong.
Yet, that is what this Government is doing.
