Adam Bandt calls Peter Dutton a 'terrorist' over Manus

Refugees protest on Manus Island with Australian Senator Nick McKim

Food, medicine, power and water have been cut from the former detention center.

Recorded messages from detainees on Manus Island have been played to a rally of hundreds of supporters in Melbourne's CBD.

Numerous protesters carried signs decrying Australia's inhumane treatment of refugees, and accusing the government of crimes against humanity - a sentiment that was echoed by Greens MP Adam Bandt, who told the crowd that Immigration Minister Peter Dutton was "a terrorist".

"We call on the Australian government. who interned the men in the first place to immediately provide protection, food, water and other basic services", United Nations rights spokesman Rupert Colville told a news briefing on Friday.

While this means an extra hour of sleep, it also means that sunrise and sunset will occur an hour earlier starting with Sunday. It has been reported that MA is now on its way to joining these areas and making changing the clocks a thing of the past.

"Australia deny to give our fundamental rights such as water and food", said Adam. Its government has said the camp had been ruled illegal by PNG authorities and it had committed to supply other sites for 12 months.

The protest in Melbourne was organised by the Refugee Action Collective of Victoria against the treatment of the refugees and was followed by a march through to Flinders Street.

For four years, Australia has paid Papua New Guinea, its nearest neighbour, and Nauru to house asylum seekers who attempt to reach the Australian coast by boat.

"Australia's policy of deterrence by rescuing people at sea, mistreating them and abandoning them has become a notion of cruelty".

On Manus Island, refugees reacted to the news by holding placards at their daily protest, thanking New Zealand for 'trying again'. "They force us to starve".

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says it is "hard to ignore the human face" of the crisis on Manus Island and the issue should not be ignored.

Last October then-Labour leader Andrew Little said Prime Minister John Key should "cause global embarrassment" to Australia if it do not accept the offer for New Zealand to take up to 150 people a year from offshore detention centres.

The stand-off was a "disgrace", Crowe, a New Zealand citizen who has lived in Australia for most of his life, told his 2.7 million Twitter followers.

Hiring Rebounded in October, Unemployment Rate Fell to 4.1%
The trade deficit came as exports fell 0.3 per cent to $43.6 billion in the month, a fourth consecutive monthly decline. The Canadian economy added a net 35,300 jobs in October on a seasonally adjusted basis, Statistics Canada said Friday.

Boochani said the New Zealand offer was "our best chance". Under the deal, which Obama's successor Donald Trump has called "dumb" - though later agreeing to honor it - Australia will take in migrants from Central America. "You can't keep political hostages".
