ATS SETTLEMENT MARKED AS A POTENTIAL SITE FOR REFUGEE SETTLEMENT (the guardian)

The ATS settlement in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea’s capital, has been identified as a potential site for newly arriving asylum seekers under the new PNG-Australia resettlement programme, announced by Australia’s prime minister Kevin Rudd on July 19. Rudd’s plan would see all asylum seekers who arrive by boat sent to PNG for processing and settlement. As a result of the programme, some 3,000 locals who currently live in the ATS settlement could stand to lose their homes http://www.theguardian.com/world/gallery/2013/jul/29/png-settlement-under-threat-pictures
