Religion in Australia


Practical assignment


Part One-Guest speakers (Lawyers)


Everyday as the world is becoming more dangerous, mostly involving confliction between countries which result in war and terrorists events, innocent are seeking for asylum, where people escape from persecution within their homeland. High populations of these needy people are entering Australia in order renew their life as well a improved environment for their children to live and study. However, due to laws people are not allowed to enter Australia without a visa permit, therefore in result these homeless people are sent to detention centers where they are kept locked up for years.


Having the government state these people as unlawful people with intentions of harming Australia and its people, the media are generally spreading the rumors about these incidents and people involved. Having to only spread information on what the government have to say and assume, not having to realize that there are still people who are clean and innocent but are finding a way to live life in peace.


The speech of Hannah and Jane giving the insight of the conditions of Baxter Detention Center had come to be unbelievable and unbearable to look. These high fenced isolated centers holding a huge mass of refugees has restricted any lawyers or visitors to enter the centre. Within these the centre, there would be a lack of green plants having to give no rights of planting any. As well inside there would be only a little medical centre, having to have a high population within, people who were sick had to wait for their turn. The only thing the people could do in there was only watch television, play on computers or only watch the sky as there was no window in order to view the outside world. These people were given the lease amount of human rights. The only human rights were acted upon those to get accepted due to the seeking of refuge from war, persecution discrimination and fears of future life. Not taking notice of any men, women or children, everyone was treated the same like a farm full of animals. Through the process of detaining these helpless people, the government of Australia has failed to support any matter of need and human rights, but instead doing the opposite and imprisoning them in these thick high walls. By keeping them in these centers only makes their life even worst as they can’t let go of the vision hold inside them of dramatic events they have seen. The government doesn’t see the bright side of letting these people free into the country, having people employ more business and able to realize that they are rescuing lives from persecution, but instead they are acting against what the law states where man and women has the right to live a happy life.


These stories conflict the images that are presented in the media due to the fact that the only source that is providing the story is through the governments views and not what the public have to see for themselves as the area are restricted and forbidden. As a result from these cruel inhuman detaining, many people of the public are against what the government is doing to these people, as today children at a young age realizes these matters.


Part Two-Surveys and interviews


The main purpose of this assignment is to why refugees are being treated in this way and why they come into out country to seek for asylum. Through the process of surveying and interviewing, we will be show what the public has to say about this matter and also their religious points of view.


My aim for surveying about this topic is targeted on the range of different ages, giving each their opinions about this. The reason why I chose to survey people at different ages is because I believe at different ages people have different view having to refer to their knowledge about the issue, giving them a better understanding providing them with better opinions.


As present on a chart above, it is shown that out of ten people 6 people say that they do not support the government in stance on asylum seekers, whereas the other 4 do. From these 4 people that said they do support the government
