Australia’s offshore refugees

Year: 2019
Al Jazeera

If you are a refugee and you arrive in Australia by boat, the government will never let you in. Security forces tow away boats, and asylum seekers are sent to detention centres on remote islands. In this episode, we meet a doctor-turned-whistleblower who saw what happens in those camps and a refugee who spent nearly five years in one before starting over in the United States.
