Outback Communities are forced to sign mining leases under duress from a tyrannical Government refusing to legislate against Genocide, in direct violation of The United Nations convention on Genocide.

Thousands of refugees and migrants are locked up in special prisons, disguised under various names, for committing the 'crime' of fleeing wars or persecution or wanting to improve their lives.
