'Department of Australia' Clears Up Australia Immigration Confusion + New Kickstarter Comic
Pretty stark, eh?
That’s one of the logos on the Australian Customs and Border Protection website.
A (mostly) wordless comic ethnically profiled an expected wave of Afghan asylum seekers, and made ‘the lucky country’ look pretty harsh indeed! http://www.scribd.com/doc/206353924/Australian-Immigration-Deterrent-Comic
There’s also an additional parody by ‘Pauline Pantsdown’.
