Onshore/Offshore: Fortress Australia says
A Refugee Week Forum

Join us at the Fremantle Town Hall for two important discussions:

Deportations and Turnbacks: rhetoric and reality

A discussion of the politics of racism and nationalism that underpin government immigration policy. What awaits those facing deportation to countries we are told are now “safe” like Afghanistan and Sri Lanka?

Farida Fozdar (Assoc Professor, School of Social Sciences, UWA)
Aran Mylvaganam (Tamil Refugee Council)
Ali Khan (Former Hazara refugee and Migration Assistant at Estrin Saul Lawyers)

A future denied: the campaign for a humanitarian asylum seeker/refugee policy

Detention, lives in limbo and the denial of basic human rights. Panellists explore the realities for asylum seekers and discuss how our community can most effectively campaign for change.

Victoria Martin-Iverson (Registered Migration Agent and
refugee rights activist)
Dr Caroline Fleay (Curtin Centre for Human Rights Education
and board member of Refugee Council of Australia)
Mehdi Valkili (Asylum seeker and Iranian human rights defender)
