EXTRACT: Let me tell you. It’s an ugly wreck of an island stripped bare of most of its vegetation by phosphate mining. We are housed in mouldy tents. The heat is unbearable. You love the sun in Australia? We hate it. It is our enemy. We would love to be able to rip it out of the sky. In Australia you do not allow pigs to be housed like we are. Yes, we can go out into the towns, but so many of us have been molested and harassed so we do it as little as possible.
