A personal account of refugee repression in Australia

As previously reported, the prospect of returning hundreds of sick refugees to the prisons camps in Nauru, sparked widespread protests in Australia. While the Australian government temporarily backed down, their commitment to a policy of repression remains. This week, an Iranian journalist held in the Manus Island, PNG, prison camp detailed the cruelty of the current system and the toll it is taking on refugees. Protests continue against the government’s policies.
