Asylum seekers in Australia protest

Australia's inhumane treatment of asylum seekers has come into the spotlight again with fires, demonstrations and a break out at the Darwin detention centre.
While in the beginning of its term, the new Labour Government had relaxed some of its 'border protection' laws, it progressively made them harsher.
The latest flare up comes in the wake of a National election campaign which asylum seekers scapegoated by both major parties.
There are many groups in Australia who have been fighting for years for the rights of people who come to Australia seeking political asylum.
