I recently went on facebook today and read an article by Adelaide now.. the comments were really offensive and upsetting, basically lots of people saying immigration should be banened. A 'poll' they did had 80% of respondents saying immigration should be banned. They were mainly fielding these comments at 'boat people' but were also saying that all types of people were essentially unwelcome.
This is the story here:
The facebook post can be found by liking adelaide now- although I have removed it from my wall due to its offensive nature and reported it to facebook, I have also contacted Adelaide now about the issue and am considering writing a formal letter and would be appreciative if anyone else would like to add their name to being disgusted by the way this reflects on immigrants(us) who have come to the country and are contributing- I personally feel very unwelcome and very unappreciated if this does indeed reflect the ideals of the majority of Australians..
