“I do not focus on the hardships that I face due to the actions that I have taken, but only on my hope and dream that the injustice will turn to justice.” ― Antany Peter ―

The indispensable knowledge has been ignored based on the racial profile

I have an Australian business degree and a postgraduate qualification. On top of that, I have read more than 300 books to expand my knowledge in world history, human development, global economy and international affairs. Instead of using my skills and rewarding me, the government is isolating me. Since the late 1990s, I have been asking the governments to use refugees in agriculture sector until their cases have been finalised, instead of locking up in detention centres. However, the ministers have been ignoring me and extending the backpackers' visas to pick fruits while locking up the refugees in detention centres. Even though the Australian Agriculture sector has enough work for backpackers and refugees. The politicians have been recklessly wasting the taxpayers’ money. The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, Save the Children and GetUp published a report in 2019 titled 'At What Cost?’ The report found that offshore detention and processing cost around $9 billion between 2016 and 2020. According to the Refugee Council of Australia report, March 2019 taxpayers are paying more than $573,000 per year to hold an asylum seeker in offshore detention; more than $346,000 to hold an asylum seeker in detention in Australia. Costing more than $103,343 for an asylum seeker to live in community detention in Australia, and $10,221 for an asylum seeker to live in the community on a bridging visa while their claim is processed.

When the Australian parliament passed the bill to go to war in Iraq, I wrote an article 'Australia cannot afford to go to war while Australia's backyard is in an absolute mess.' I had published the Aboriginal kids' photos with running nose, dirty hair and barefoot. ince the European invasion, Australian Aboriginal people have been going nowhere in term of their rights. I have been writings to make awareness, but it has been extremely difficult. We have heard Germans rescued Jews during Hitler's atrocities, but we never heard an Aboriginal person was rescued by Australians when the British settlers were eliminating Aboriginal people in Tasmania. he government has been painting a glamorous picture of its governance, so it didn't want the world to see the truth, especially the Middle Eastern countries. Between 2003 and 2008, I have made awareness of the outback and detention centres while Australia was fighting in Iraq. In 2008, the Australian Government deleted my citizenship and traumatised me as an illegal immigrant. I was working as an accountant and lost my job. I couldn't service my home loan without a job. Consequently, I had to sell my house. When I had open house inspections for sale, the police would come for a routine check to intimate potential buyers. Eventually, I had to sell my house for loss. The government made sure that I will not have money to take a legal action and continually isolating me so I will not have the people power to expose the truth.

The Australian Government deliberately brought me to the street. When I had reached out to the international community, the Australian Government silently reinstated my citizenship without an explanation or apology. Eleven years have passed since they deleted my citizenship and brought me to the street. Still, I can't get a professional job due to the government's systematic propaganda. I cannot even obtain a credit card for 100 dollars with a postgraduate qualification from the RMIT University, Melbourne. The government has been insulting my knowledge and making me suffer. Sadly, the leaders would not listen or learn from others, so they won't change. In 1953, the German government made payments to the Jewish people as a way of acknowledging Germany’s responsibility. However, still Australia hasn't acknowledged any of its genocides. We stop being humans beings when we refuse to learn but adopting animalistic behaviours. In the 21st century, among the western countries, only Australia allows its Parliament to validly enact laws that are racially discriminatory. The Australian parliament and corporate offices are representing white Australia, not multiculturalism. The government is not valuing talents from minority races. I wrote two letters to Prime Minister Scott Morrison and sent those letters through registered post. However, no reply from the Prime Minister's office, but the government is too busy fear-mongering the public about me through propaganda.
