New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern slams 'unacceptable' Manus Island situation

In this Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017 image supplied by Hass Hassaballa, asylum seekers sit on the ground as they refuse to leave the Manus Island detention center in Papua New Guinea.

"Our advice to them is that common sense must prevail", Manus Police Commander David Yapu said on Monday. "In his time as Immigration Minister Ruddock oversaw the opening of the Nauru detention centre, and spread vicious falsehoods about refugees throwing their children overboard so as to stoke racism in the electorate", said Holly Brooke, one of the protesters.

Fr Roche said before they were not allowed to go inside the centre to help the refugees and asylum seekers, but after the current move to the new facilities at Lorangau, they are able to provide help to the refugees and asylum seekers with charitable groups.

The approximately 420 asylum seekers and refugees choosing to remain at the now-closed Manus Island processing centre have been without food, water or medical supplies for nearly two weeks.

"Australia has illegally detained these asylum-seekers for years now, and now they've essentially abandoned them and they've got no food, no water, no medicine, and no power".

In recent days more than 100 men have voluntarily left the centre for the new accommodation. They have entered the camp to destroy shelters and remove bins in which drinking water was being stored but they have not tried to forcibly evict anyone.

"The current situation at the MRPC and on Manus Island is now totally out of control and fears of a looming "bloodbath" are mounting by the day". "Is it the Australians, is it the immigration, or is it the asylum seekers?"

She's seeking another meeting with Turnbull to discuss New Zealand's offer to take 150 of the refugees and doesn't believe the Aussie PM sees it as a stunt.

"We see that we have a role to play here, we're very eager to play that role and as I say I'll be having another conversation with the Prime Minister in the Philippines".

"The safety of both the refugees and government workers plus staff of leading agencies is not to be taken for granted given the tension that is now being expressed by the locals on Manus Island", he said. "I think it's clear that we don't think what's happening there as acceptable, that's why the offer's there", she said.
