GENERATORS HAVE BEEN TAKEN OUT OF MANUS COMPOUNDS
All electricity generators have been removed from all compounds at the Manus detention centre this morning (Wednesday, 1 November) as Dutton extends the brutal seige of the centre (photos attached).
There is now no elecricity for any of the detention centre. The loss of power will cause further problems for the toilets and water, as some at least rely on electricy driven pumps.
Lawyers are still waiting for a judge to be appointed to for an urgent Supreme Court hearing this morning to consider an injunction to stop the closure of the centre and to restore services.
