Manus Event: Inside Australia's Pacific Non-Solution (audio now available)

Audio from the Melbourne event is now available - click here (33 mins).

Two years after the ‘Regional Resettlement Agreement’ between Australia and PNG was announced, more asylum seekers sent to Manus have died than been resettled and 945 men continue to languish indefinitely in detention. The Human Rights Law Centre’s Daniel Webb and Human Rights Watch’s Elaine Pearson recently returned from Manus Island, Papua New Guinea where they were investigating conditions on the ground.

We hope you can join us on either Tuesday 11 August in Melbourne or Wednesday 19 August in Sydney for a briefing and public discussion about the current conditions facing refugees and asylum seekers on the island and the many pitfalls of Australia’s asylum seeker policies.

The facilitated panel discussion and public question and answer session will feature:

Daniel Webb, Director of Legal Advocacy, Human Rights Law Centre

Elaine Pearson, Australian Director, Human Rights Watch
