The government of Nauru is a disgrace.
It has arrested over 150 refugees who held a peaceful protest and has threatened to jail anyone who assembles in groups of three or more.
Nauru claims to be a democracy but it is clear it’s fast becoming a pathetic, tin pot dictatorship.
The refugees arrested are not those held in the detention centre. These are the ones who have been given official refugee status.
But they say they are being treated like second class citizens and don’t have freedom of movement or access to several basic services.
