Great film
29 September 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I thought "Letters to Ali" was an excellent film. It was a great slam against John Howard's policies towards asylum seekers. It is a shame that many Australians embrace what he does believing it is done with the intent of keeping us safe.

Many keep hearing about the brutal the Taliban are and support the actions of the Coalition in removing them. Yet when they come to us to seek refuge and a safer place they are incarcerated and treated as badly as they would if under the Taliban.

This film should definitely be seen in schools. If more people see it they will see the human tragedy and come to understand the plight of asylum seekers.

I am Australian; I am ashamed of Howard's policies and the racist attitude adopted by Australians
