Movie: Chasing Asylum

Even if you accept Malcolm Turnbull’s argument that offshore detention is necessary to stop deaths at sea, I think that all Australians need to see what is being done on behalf of “the Australian people” and take responsibility for it.  Brave people speaking out  in this documentary risk jail under the Border Force Act, in order that we can see these camps that are so rigorously hidden from our view.

  1. Our programme of towing boats out to sea, or imprisoning asylum seekers on barren islands, is a moral disgrace. I am not sure I would be able to sleep, if I saw the film 😦

    Certainly we are not the only nation to endanger the lives of asylum seekers, but that is no excuse whatsoever.
