Video Journalist | #NauruFilesReading

The Australian government detains over 500 refugees on the remote Pacific Island of Nauru. The Nauru Files are documented incidents of abuse, self-harm, humiliation and squalor that is everyday life for refugees detained indefinitely in a private facility on this island. 

On 27 August 2016, activists carried out a 10-hour reading of the files outside Australia House, London. We documented the peaceful protest and made an informative film to raise awareness about the horrible situation.
