How ungrateful people can be. Those group threatening to go on hunger stkike might as well threaten to go back to their country. I reckon that they are carrying their luck too far when you consider the number of jobless people in country who are struggling to have 3 square meal with their family. Enough is enough.

It high time the State review its policy on asylum seekers before they turn themselves into another monster that we the citizens should be scared of.

I agree with Brian,Sean and those residents that are not part of this bogus strike. If the news that they still collect food at the centre is anything to go by, then they should be thought a lesson to prevent any precedence.

Those on hunger stike should be told that they are bringing disrepute to our beloved community. We the local residents will not tolerate any act that protray our community negatively.

I know that you can only go on hunger strike if you have food to eat. They should be thanking their stars that we feed, accommodate and train their kids in our schools (all free), otherwise they won't even think of hunger strike in the first instance. Their food portion should be sent people in real need.
