A series of riots began a an asylum-seekers’ detention center in Australia after several inmates climbed to the roof of one of the barracks in protest. The aggrieved migrants were angry because their asylum applications had been rejected, and additional inmates soon joined them on the roof in solidarity. Other culture enrichers rioted and set fire to buildings.
The police refused to supply food to the protesters on the roof, drawing criticism from immigrants’ rights groups, who plan a protest in front of the center. Only three inmates remain on the roof, and they say they want to come down.
In other news, Thilo Sarrazin, the outspoken author and critic of German immigration policies, will not be expelled from the Social Democrats. By agreeing never to violate SD Party policies again in his public utterances, he was allowed to stay in the party.
