The Australian Government has been saying repeatedly: 'Trust us, we're abiding by the terms of the arms trade treaty, we're abiding by our human rights obligations,' but the reality is we simply don't know because there is no transparency. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-02-20/australian-firm-eos-weapons-systems-bound-for-saudi-arabia/10825660 … via @ABCNews

Unbelievable. The Australian gov has given $36 million in taxpayers funding to Canberra defence company EOS systems as they export an advanced weapons system to #Saudi Arabia - which stands accused of war crimes in #Yemen. Important story by @dylanwelch

Sport has a duty to uphold and promote human rights. To make a positive impact. To help the world, not just sell shirts and emotion. This would be a travesty: Manchester United: Saudi Arabia prince Mohammed Bin Salman denies takeover bid - BBC Sport

The offshore detention of asylum seekers is firmly back on the political agenda, and the world is watching. American podcast @reveal has coproduced this must-listen episode with Background Briefing and journalist @oliviarousset 🎧 https://www.revealnews.org/episodes/five-years-on-nauru/ … #auspol #insiders

Quoted @FOXFOOTBALL

This is how you do “sportswashing”. This PR statement, that MbS supports gender equality in Saudi Arabia is false - fake news. Saudis are jailing and torturing women activists for campaigning for basic civil rights and against Male guardianship system. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/global-opinions/saudi-arabia-is-heinously-torturing-female-activists-it-must-face-consequences/2019/02/10/67ac3e06-2b00-11e9-b2fc-721718903bfc_story.html?utm_term=.078fd33cbf60 …

He’s back!! Hakeem al-Araibi touches down in Australia .. “I love this country”

He’s back!! Hakeem al-Araibi touches down in Australia .. “I love this country”

"I'm not a citizen yet but Australia is my country' Hakeem told reporters. Right now, amid so much fear mongering of asylum seekers remember this moment. And remember how Australians who cared helped change the fate of a young man persecuted & tortured in his homeland #HakeemHome

Thanks for all the lovely messages re our program. Sorry I'm just getting back to some of them now. Off to have a twitter break for a while so I can get this bloody book done 😳

The WSJ confirms: Saud al Qahtani, who organized the murder of Jamal Khashoggi and the torture of women activists, is still active at the Saudi royal court. https://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-seeks-accountability-for-former-saudi-aide-in-khashoggi-killing-11549920938 … via @WSJ

The campaign to save Hakeem shows that it's worth moving heaven and earth to save one life. I really hope this is the Australia we are.

What a wonderful day! I could almost get used to all this good news... Rahaf and now Hakeem! Is the world finally waking up to these torturous Gulf dictatorships and what they do to their own citizens? One can only hope #Hakeemhome

She lived in a huge palace in Dubai, but she couldn't travel, study or even go to her friends' houses. So Sheikha Latifa tried to escape. She almost made it.

Former race discrimination commissioner @timsout says there has been a mainstreaming of hate in Australia and we've seen this in #auspol

"Some political leaders and segments of our political class are openly entertaining it and giving latent, if not explicit, support to it."

Blocking asylum, by sea & air. So how exactly are Saudi women fleeing persecution meant to seek protection? An interesting read by @KaldorCentre scholars on what Australian law says. https://goo.gl/crb4TV , via @LowyInstitute
