|That was some party!|
Some of Australia's less welcome guests threw a party in Curtin detention center.
SMH-2002-04-22 reports that knives and meat-cleavers were used as part of
"Well it gets boring in here with nothing to do" complained one of the inmates.
"And we only lit the fire because it was cold".
"We thought we would show these cynical Australians how we can kick up our
heels and have a good time - just like we do at home".
The refugee action groups were confident that once Australians realized
that people from the Middle East were just like Australians that they would
agree to open Australia's borders.
"We have a lot to offer Australia" one said
"Australia could be like bonfire night every night of the year".
Immigration authorities admitted that the situation was a stand-off.
"We're not coming to the party unless we are invited!" they insisted.
"It looks like a lot of fun, We don't believe in gate-crashing where we
are not wanted".
Local Aboriginal groups refused to comment.
