    Rumours Of A "Final Solution" To Oz Refugees Alarm Activists

    [1] "The Australian Prime Minister's 'final solution' of sending all boatpeople, whether inside or outside the migration zone, to the to be completed Christmas Island detention centre should cause one mighty revolution in Federal Parliament as has rarely been seen in Australian politics, and not just because this constitutes another breach of what Australia promised with its UN Convention signature," WA Refugee group Project SafeCom said this morning, upon rumours about this plan 'slowly leaking' through an AAP Wire report and from reports about the SBS Insight program to be aired tonight.
