Recording of Event: Hope Out of Horror – Seeking Refuge in Australia
SJAB (Social Justice Around the Bay), St. Vincent de Paul, Northern Sydney/ Central Coast Regional Social Justice Committee and Jesuit Refugee Service Australia (JRS) held a Webinar titled:
Hope Out of Horror – Seeking Refuge in Australia on Thursday, September 23, 7pm – 8pm.
This event assumes a new and greater urgency In the face of the Horror currently being faced by the people of Afghanistan and by those Afghans marooned here on temporary visas.
While our Government’s initial response to the resurgence of the Taliban gives some hope it is long term compassion and change of policy that must follow.
This webinar will offer stories of courage and resilience from those who have suffered under a succession of repressive Government policies; it will present facts and statistics on what this country has lost through dehumanisation of fellow beings and it will draw back the curtains to expose how and where families and individuals are trapped in hotel detention and sub-standard living conditions.
