Year 11HESS restrictedReligion in AustraliaPractical assignmentPart One-Guest speakers (Lawyers)Everyday as the world is becoming more dangerous, mostly involvingconfliction between countries which result in war and terrorists events,innocent are seeking for asylum, where people escape from persecutionwithin their homeland. High populations of these needy people are enteringAustralia in order renew their life as well a improved environment fortheir children to live and study. However, due to laws people are notallowed to enter Australia without a visa permit, therefore in result thesehomeless people are sent to detention centers where they are kept locked upfor years.Having the government state these people as unlawful people with intentionsof harming Australia and its people, the media are generally spreading therumors about these incidents and people involved. Having to only spreadinformation on what the government have to say and assume, not having torealize that there are still people who are clean and innocent but arefinding a way to live life in peace.The speech of Hannah and Jane giving the insight of the conditions ofBaxter Detention Center had come to be unbelievable and unbearable to look.
These high fenced isolated centers holding a huge mass of refugees hasrestricted any lawyers or visitors to enter the centre. Within these thecentre, there would be a lack of green plants having to give no rights ofplanting any. As well inside there would be only a little medical centre,having to have a high population within, people who were sick had to waitfor their turn.
The only thing the people could do in there was only watchtelevision, play on computers or only watch the sky as there was no windowin order to view the outside world. These people were given the leaseamount of human rights. The only human rights were acted upon those to getaccepted due to the seeking of refuge from war, persecution discriminationand fears of future life. Not taking notice of any men, women or children,everyone was treated the same like a farm full of animals. Through theprocess of detaining these helpless people, the government of Australia hasfailed to support any matter of need and human rights, but instead doingthe opposite and imprisoning them in these thick high walls. By keepingthem in these centers only makes their life even worst as they can’t let goof the vision hold inside them of dramatic events they have seen. Thegovernment doesn’t see the bright side of letting these people free intothe country, having people employ more business and able to realize thatthey are rescuing lives from persecution, but instead they are actingagainst what the law states where man and women has the right to live ahappy life.These stories conflict the images that are presented in the media due tothe fact that the only source that is providing the story is through thegovernments views and not what the public have to see for themselves as thearea are restricted and forbidden.
As a result from these cruel inhumandetaining, many people of the public are against what the government isdoing to these people, as today children at a young age realizes thesematters.Part Two-Surveys and interviewsThe main purpose of this assignment is to why refugees are being treated inthis way and why they come into out country to seek for asylum. Through theprocess of surveying and interviewing, we will be show what the public hasto say about this matter and also their religious points of view.My aim for surveying about this topic is targeted on the range of differentages, giving each their opinions about this. The reason why I chose tosurvey people at different ages is because I believe at different agespeople have different view having to refer to their knowledge about theissue, giving them a better understanding providing them with betteropinions.picpicAs present on a chart above, it is shown that out of ten people 6 peoplesay that they do not support the government in stance on asylum seekers,whereas the other 4 do. From these 4 people that said they do support thegovernment due to the fact that they are illegally entering a countrywithout any visa permitted and saying that at least the government haveprovided them a bed and shelter to stay, rather then being persecutedwherever they live.
They also say that the media isn’t also fair to
