Slides from the 2019 Public Forum "Sri Lanka to Australia: From Persecution to Detention": https://refugeeaction.org/events/public-forum-sri-lanka-to-australia/
How is it possible that a family, seeking asylum and the chance to build a new life in Australia, can be dragged from their beds and into detention?
This public forum examines Australia's refugee assessment process, and our government's assurances that Sri Lanka is now safe for Tamils. Our speakers will shine a spotlight on the current refugee claims process in Australia and the impact that it has on applicants, sometimes with horrendous consequences. The forum will also look at the circumstances that caused Priya and Nades and thousands of other Tamils to flee Sri Lanka. Speakers will also scrutinise the Morrison government's assurances that Sri Lanka is now safe for Tamils.
