BRING DAVID HICKS HOME
this is just one of many shameful things the australian government has allowed to happen, if not purposefully enacted.
hicks is an australian citizen.
howard says he has no sympathy for a person who trained with al-qaeda.
that is irrelevant. howard is playing god. regardless of what an australian citizen has done in a territory other than their home country, it is the duty of this government and its representatives to assist that person so that they receive support, in ways both legal and humane.
if there is a case against hicks, lay it on the line.
if there isn't, fucking do something about it.
either way, he shouldn't be left to rot there.
bring him home.
let it run its course.
stand up for what's right, and true and just.
for fuck's sake, howard, it's not as if anyone is asking you to APOLOGISE or anything.
