Over the last few years I have started petitions concerned with closing the concentration camps and freeing asylum seekers into the community.

The petitions were met with a stony silence generally, the first one obtaining less than 90 signatures. The second one reached about 40.

All of a sudden, because there has been talk of the numbers of children in the camps, their treatment in the camps and torture and disease growing alarmingly, the population is gradually stirring and more people are becoming concerned about the situation.

I don't know what would happen if one tried to start another petition but I am not game to try, being too worn out by the disgusting politics of the whole situation.

Who caused the situation in so many countries around the world that as of today, there are millions all over who are trying to escape the disasters unfolding in their countries of origin?

Why, none other than the USA, UK, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Russia, China, Israel and other countries too numerous to list ---------- and as they say, ......."and the band played on".
