"People who are mentally healthy and in control of their lives do not self-harm or go on hunger strikes," said RAR spokeswoman Emma Corcoran.
"These are the actions of powerless and despairing people. They are so desperate to have a normal life. All they want is freedom, but they have all spent 4 or 5 years in detention. "The government could stop the terrible suffering of these people, and save the Australian people millions of dollars, by giving these asylum seekers freedom," Ms Corcoran said. "These people are now our friends, and all we want for them is a fair go." Rural Australians for Refugees is the largest grassroots refugee support groups, with approximately 15,000 supporters nationwide. Contact: Emma Corcoran (08) 8642-4414

The asylum seekers _ most of whom have been held at an immigration detention center in South Australia state for three to four years _ say they face grave danger if they are returned to Sri Lanka, said Emma Corcoran, a spokeswoman for Rural Australians for Refugees (RAR). Under the current procedure for assessing asylum claims, immigration officials evaluate only the political situation at the time the application is filed, Corcoran said Monday.But the hunger strikers say recent political developments in Sri Lanka place them at greater risk of persecution, and are seeking to have their cases reopened. Peace negotiations aimed at ending Sri Lanka's civil war were suspended in April 2003 when the rebel Tamil Tigers withdrew from the talks, accusing the government of reneging on its promises to rehabilitate the war-torn northeast and resettle ethnic Tamils displaced by two decades of war. "All they're asking for is that their claims are assessed again in light of the new situation," Corcoran said. A spokesman for the Department of Immigration, who spoke on a customary condition of anonymity, said the department was monitoring the asylum seekers' health, but that waging a hunger strike would not help their cause. "The department doesn't respond to these sorts of actions and it will not change the outcome of their cases," he said. Email this story
