For a whole day, on 19 July 2017, James Cunningham and I read the Nauru files – which are leaked daily reports, showing how inhumane the Australian situation of refugees and asylum seekers is, in offshore concentration camps on Pacific islands of Nauru and Manus.
We read the Nauru files on 19 July, live streaming from Facebook, as we wanted to commemorate 4 years of indefinite detention of these people, who arrived by boat.
Somehow the Australian government took these people as example to stop boats coming and breached human rights in many ways, demonstrated through the Nauru files.
There is a real crisis in Manus concentration camp, which is supposed to be closed by 31 October 2017, but without any solution for the detainees/refugees & asylum seekers.
It's like a siege: with water and electricity cut and police ready to attack people. Media do not talk much about that.
