Script Details

Cue: Since the decision of the government of Papua New Guinea to close the Manus Regional Processing Centre, long a linchpin of the so-called ‘Pacific Solution’ to the steady barrage of asylum-seekers hoping to gain a foothold in Australia, controversy surrounding Australia’s willingness to embrace non-European immigrants has only intensified. In a memo last February, from Martin Bowles of the Department of Health, new plans seem to be in the work for new immigration and blood donation policies which many are calling racist. Andreas Budiman reports.

(ambi 1 roadside noise)
(track 1) Inside the Manus Detention Centre, activities appear to be getting tense. Many of the detainees – hailing from as diverse origins as Myanmar, Pakistan, and even Haiti – insist on their position to move on to the Australian mainland while they await final word on their status. However, a new controversy has come to plague a setting already dogged by controversy, with many of them now being subjected to an additional layer of scrutiny due to the existence of their countries of origin on HIV/AIDS watch lists, preventing them from both giving blood and entering Australia. Ahmad al-Ghazi, a Somalian, stands by a Yemeni, Abdel-Aziz bin Daghr commenting on the issue.

It is ridiculous that my country being discriminated against because it is stigmatized as the home [sic] of the AIDS epidemic. I have never had dirty sex in my life. My blood is clean, I’m sure of it.

(track 2) Ahmad was recently briefed by the Australian Red Cross, with whom he has volunteered while at the Centre, that not only is he barred now from donating blood, but he may in fact face additional problems due to the association being drawn by the Department of Health between the transmission of HIV and people hailing from Africa. James Cricket, The Australian Red Cross official commenting on the issue.
