Operation Sovereign Murders

Watch and listen: Here Immigration Minister Scott Morrison referred to Australia’s appalling Asylum Seeker policies as “Operation Sovereign Murders” before pulling up his Freudian slip and correcting “Murders” with “Borders”.

Suicide crisis – from tragic to catastrophic
