May the Fourth be with You.

A lover of StarWars the date holding a significance on the cult movies calender. The pun "May the Fourth be with you", a variant of the popular Star Wars catchphrase "May the Force be with you". Not an official calender holiday, many Star Wars fans across the world chose to celebrate the day. Embraced by Lucasfilm and parent company Disney as an annual celebration of Star Wars.

My May 4th this year, reflective of the Universal force reference. Writing to the Prime Minister of Australia - Liberal Leader Scott Morrison regarding righting a wrong ultimately initiated into motion after the Labor Government under Prime Minister Kevin Rudd (2013) made a political statement with a controversial Agreement to relocate Asylum seekers to Manus Island detention center, Papua New Guinea.

A unique case, the manner of execution clearly has the onus of responsibility regarding Helal Uddin, known globally as 'Spicy' for his chef prowess, being sent Papua New Guinea as Australian.

A man held in detention for many years as a refugee by Australia, his story is heartbreaking and displays an inexcusable level of inhumane treatment.

As a Human Rights Activist, I see many Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to which Australia claims part, overlooked and believe Helal should be free to spend time with his son and forfill his dreams. A passion for cooking, I have had the pleasure of reading Spicy cookbook he has been writing while detained. With great hopes, and the wonderful outcome of freedom, I look forward to indulging his recipes.

Human Rights Matter. A Better World.
