Goodwill letters sent to Nauru returned unopened

Last year, Julian Burnside, a lawyer working tirelessly for asylum seekers, organised a letter writing campaign to the asylum seekers on Nauru. There were thousands of responses to the drive, which was similar to one Burnside had organised several years ago.

Having noticed that nobody received any return letters, even though each included a stamped, addressed envelope to send one in, Burnside began following up where the letters had gone. Though he was assured that the letters had been delivered, after six months, he received boxes of returned, unopened letters.
