The Fight for Refugee Rights Continues

Tuesday 18th June / presented by Andy Snelling

Speaking at one of many World Refugee Day Rallies on Sunday, Greens MP Adam Brandt told the crowd in Fitzroy:

“We are seeing a (creation) of a permanent under-class in our society where people really in need of protection worry about indefinite mandatory detention, despite the fact that we know it destroys lives and doesn’t deter people coming here seeking a better life.”

Every year World Refugee Week draws attention to this problem and the millions of refugees worldwide who have been forced to flee from peril in their home countries.

It is a time when we can voice our support even more for the humane treatment of these refugees and recognise the ways they have enriched our nation.

Someone who knows a lot about this is Associate Professor Mary Anne Kenney, who came in to share some of her knowledge with us.
