Australian govt uses comic strips & FAKE horoscopes to scare off asylum-seeking Sri Lankans

Australian govt uses comic strips & FAKE horoscopes to scare off asylum-seeking Sri Lankans

rt - 9 months ago

A series of fake horoscopes and comic strips used by the Australian government to discourage Sri Lankans from seeking asylum have been shared online, to the outrage of many who claim they miss the point entirely.

The Australian government has run a multimillion dollar series of multimedia advertising campaigns to dissuade people from seeking asylum there, deploying billboards, online ads, comic books and now, fake horoscopes.

Australian Government

Astrology is quite popular in Sri Lanka and the fake horoscopes are replete with doom and gloom predictions for each star sign if they attempt to travel to Australia illegally by boat; Geminis will lose their wife’s jewellery, Taurus will “face the humiliation of failure in [their] community,” Virgos will have legal problems, Pisces will lose their family’s land back home, and so on. 

Judging by reaction online, not everyone agrees with Australia’s zero-tolerance approach to asylum seekers who arrive by boat, nor do they agree with attempts to emotionally manipulate would-be migrants and refugees with negative propaganda campaigns. 

“That is truly sick. And I don’t mean in that new hip sort of way. It is sickening, through and through,” wrote one disgusted commenter.  

“Who the bloody hell are the people that make up this government? Unbelievable is right,” agreed another.

Others used the opportunity to skewer the Australian government over perceived failures closer to home. “Don’t they need people to rebuild the country after it burns down?”
