Jellybean 31 with Matt Eckersley

So you’ve heard of Christmas Island, right? Its all bad, right? Well, it is bad but its not all bad and as often is said theres two sides to every story. And as I often to say theres more than two sides to every story.

Matt has been working out in the Indian Ocean Territories for a while. There is a lot of aspects to whats been happening out there that I knew nothing about. He has been there for a number of extreme events; self-harm events, riots, the 2010 boat sinking tragedy etc

Matt has also worked in the Christmas Island Hospital and soon is on the way to an even smaller more remote Cocos Island where the locals mostly speak Malay. Did you know that? There are a lot of new info in here. He gives a very measured and very informative insight into a largely misunderstood part of Australia.

He is impressively delicate and diplomatic about Christmas Island and good on him. I will not pretend; I am vehemently opposed to Australian Government policy on immigration, asylum seekers, mandatory detention etc. It’s evil. If karma exists some powerful white Australian people have some demonstrably awful times ahead.

Here is the link to the entire letter written by the Doctors from the Detention Centre, please, read it and be informed; Riots at Australia's Christmas Island Centre
