Melbourne: Film: Border Politics

17 July 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

BORDER POLITICS is a documentary that follows human rights barrister Julian Burnside as he traverses the globe examining the harsh treatment meted out to refugees by most Western democracies. This contemporary story is about the threat to human rights, the loss of democratic values and our increasingly heartless treatment

BOOK TICKETS

Join hundreds of others and remind Peter Dutton that compassion is part of being human.

TAKE THE BURNSIDE CHALLENGE:

Peter Dutton calls boat people “illegal”. But almost all the people coming to Australia seeking asylum turn out to be refugees genuinely entitled to protection.

I (Julian Burnside) challenge you to send Minister Dutton this very short email:
Minister Dutton: Why do you call asylum seekers “illegal”?
Why are they banished for years to shocking conditions in Nauru and PNG?
Why not treat them decently?

Yours faithfully …
