The Asylum Seeker Refuge Centre is asking people to send Christmas cards to the kids in detention. Let them know there are many Australians thinking of them and hoping that they are released from detention soon. Write to the 134 teenage boys at the Melbourne Immigration Transit Accommodation (MITA): ‘Christmas Cards for the kids’, Melbourne Immigration Transit Accommodation, PO Box 17 Campbellfield, Victoria, Australia 3061.
And as they note, ‘We need to protect the privacy of the children so we can’
t give out names. We know many of the kids there are Muslim but the Christmas Cards are our way of letting the kids there are people who care and are thinking of them.’
So getting writing, and send some festive cheer to those who have sod-all because of our hideous laws.
