澳洲政府最新的难民管制政策一直饱受大众和舆论的谴责。近日各大媒体报道了一名来自西太平洋岛国瑙鲁岛的强奸案受害女性在赴澳寻求难民庇护和协助流产未果后被澳洲政府遣返的消息。该事件也让澳洲连日来备受争议的难民问题再度升级。

 

图为上周末在澳洲各大城市中心群众自发组织的示威抗议活动,相信在澳生活的小伙伴们也都有所耳闻。今天小编为大家解析一下BBC NEWS对此事件发表的最新官方报道,希望烤鸭们在了解该事件的同时借此积累一些高级词汇和提高学术写作能力。

 

There were demonstrations(指示威活动) in support of refugees in Australia last weekend.

(注意in support of和there be句型的结合使用)

 

A Somali woman who was allegedly (据称)raped on Nauru and brought to Australia for an abortion (流产)has reportedly (据报道,引用论据时好用)been flown back to the island.

(修饰主语的who定语从句包含了大量过去时信息;主句用完成时最准确;谓语前的修辞副词是使用高级词汇的好时机)

 

The woman, 23, was sent back without the abortion having taken place.

(句式多样性的典型例子;年龄作为修饰主语的插入语简洁明了;with/without something + doing/done/having done伴随状语的完成时语态运用准确)

 

Under Australia’s asylum(庇护) policy, any undocumented migrants trying to reach the country by boat are intercepted(拦截) and held in centres on Nauru and Manus Island, Papua New Guinea. (Under…policy, 描述某种政策)

 

On Twitter, Australian Greens senator(议员/理事) Sarah Hanson-Young said it was “hard to fathom(探知) a more brutal way of treating a young woman traumatised(被伤害) by rape and now pregnant

(hard/difficult to fathom a more … way of doing … by …表示对某种方式的强烈反对)

 

Abortion is illegal in Nauru, except where the mother’s life is at risk. Rape is not considered a justifiable reason to seek a termination.

(注意此处except加从句的引导词where;be considered a justifiable…论述正反观点)

 

The Australian government says its asylum policy deters people-traffickers (制止人贩)but there has been criticism of the conditions at the camps.

(but/however/while + there has been criticism of…进行转折和对比)
