Niro Kandasamy of the Tamil Refugee Council

Date:

Topic: How Australia’s policies towards refugees particularly
disadvantage the Sri Lankan Tamils.

At this meeting we will hear a presentation from Niro and view a short film entitled ‘Stop the Boats – the Lie of Saving Lives at Sea.’

European journalists Nicolai Jung and Phil Miller’s film Stop the Boats – the lie of saving lives at sea — which premiered at the Nuremberg International Human Rights Film Festival in 2017 — exposed both Australia’s brutal interception policies to stop boat arrivals of refugees and the lies that justify those policies.
