Port Macquarie Resistance-To-Refugees Group Established

Australia First received the following communique from a patriotic group in Port Macquarie:

This blog and information service has been created in protest of Port Macquarie-Hastings being officially declared a "Refugee Welcome Zone" on Tuesday, 27 May 2008, and of Port Macquarie-Hastings council entertaining any idea of becoming a voluntary part of the federal governments insane and irresponsible refugee relocation program.

Port Macquarie Preservationists

We protest that this has been declared with no consultation with the Hastings community.

We protest there was no referendum or so much as a poll held on the issue by council.

We protest that the morality of one man (Cameron Price) has been forced upon a community of 60,000 people through a motion passed by a council who was sacked for constantly misleading the community.

We protest that refugees will receive immediate placement in public housing and rental accommodation whilst locals wait in 15 year long queues and local homeless live on the streets.

We protest that they will be provided with unique specialist medical care whilst locals are denied basic medical services and our health infrastructure crumbles.

We protest that African refugees will receive special vocational training and job placement in the local area whilst our local youth are forced to move away for educational and work opportunities.

We protest that the Port Macquarie-Hastings community, especially our aged, children and young people will be exposed to tuberculosis, malaria, hepatitis, measles, intestinal parasites and clinical rickets and unknown African diseases because refugees are not adequately screened and come from countries where these diseases are rife.

We protest that our community will be exposed to the gangs, crime, violence and rape committed by African refugees in other parts of the country.

We provide ample proof of these concerns in our blog from mainstream media sources.

We demand that the "Refugee Welcome Zone" declaration be cancelled and that Port Macquarie-Hastings never becomes any part whatsoever of the federal governments insane and irresponsible refugee relocation program.
