“Mr Aristotle argues that one way of allaying ”pull factor” anxieties would be to commit to ”more places further up the line in Pakistan and Iran, before people have to depart and begin their journey”.”

Prime Minister Gillard please take the above advice on board and give Paris Aristotle AM a job so he can physically live and work centrally in Quetta, Pakistan, one of the major sources of asylum seekers who come to Australia by boat, instead hiding his “expertise” under a bushel in the remote suburbs of Melbourne. The time is ripe now, for him to be given a more hands on role of regional refugee and humanitarian co-ordinator in Quetta (https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=204449859707490388376.000491ea4e4942a1e25e0) and use his 20 years of experience earning money as a “refugee expert”, to help persecuted Hazara refugees come the “right way” instead of losing their lives in leaky boats. Particularly as he has pinpointed this area quite correctly as a source of concern, with predictions that more Afghan refugees will be looking to seek refuge the next few years as the situation deteriorates in this region (http://www.abc.net.au/unleashed/4725706.html).

We urge bipartisan support for Paris Aristotle to be given this job and hope they will allow him to stay in Quetta over a significant period of time to help reduce the number of Afghan refugees dying not just in the sea but on land when they even go to the Passport office in Pakistan (http://tribune.com.pk/story/379069/2-hazaras-killed-1-injured-in-targeted-attack/).
