Nauru: Anti Democratic, Anti Refugee


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.

The President of Nauru Labeled a Dictator


Is the president of Nauru, Baron Waqa a leader or a dictator?

Five MP’s have been suspended from the nation’s parliament simply because they spoke to the international media.

The President supports the decision saying the MP’s acted in an “unruly manner”.

Now the Chief Justice has upheld their suspensions, saying the Supreme Court did not have the power to reverse parliament's decision.

One of the suspended MP’s Roland Kun is now openly referring to the current government as a dictatorship.
