As we have heard, doctors are protecting a baby at the Lady Cilento Hospital in Brisbane from deportation.
As teachers we are supposed to be mandatory notifiers of child abuse.
I want to call on all teachers to make their voices heard regarding the plight of 37 babies and many children currently incarcerated in detention centres or facing deportation at the hands of the federal government.
I’m not going to be silent any longer. Please write to the Teachers Federation and demand stronger action.
