E is for … Equality

After discussing some of the political stances on refugee entry into Australia and New Zealand with some friends we became overwhelmed by the fact that it seems people (often in power) seem to forget one simple fact.

The only difference between ‘us’ and ‘them’ is the chance and privilege of our birth place.

Surely we can all agree that this does not make anymore more privy to basic human rights in our world.

This goes for refugees, IDPs, and those who lack the resources or opportunity to escape war and poverty.
