Protest at the Immigration Depoartment corner of Lonsdale and Springs Sts this Friday 12 noon

– Bring the stabbed Afghan refugee to Australia
– Bring eveyone Australia forced to Manus, back here to safety

An Afghan refugee on Manus Island has been horrifically and repeatedly stabbed with screwdriver after refusing to hand over his phone. He was stabbed in the shoulders, back and neck.

Behrouz Boochani reported “This refugee was beaten up by someone in Lorengau town yesterday. This is what the Australian government is doing on Manus Island,”

“Keeping 600 men in a small town makes many problems. These are problems created by Australia and PNG. The situation in Manus is very complicated. It creates many problems for refugees and locals. The Australian government is causing harm and knows it.”

Immigration Minister Peter Dutton said during the Manus seige last year “The fact that somehow security is not provided or there’s a problem around security, it’s a nonsense.”

The photos of this man in the Guardian and on social media prove otherwise:
