As the Australian Red Cross faces criticisms over its bushfire efforts, current and former employees question the broad scope of its fundraising appeal.Concerns have been raised about how that money will be used, and if enough of it will reach people in need and reach them quickly.
A Letter From Manus Island
Today, The Saturday Paper published Behrouz Boochani's poetic manifesto, A Letter From Manus Island.
To mark this piece, and Behrouz's contribution to public discourse while held on Manus, the essay was performed in the courtyard at the Malthouse Theatre by writer and poet Maxine Beneba Clarke.
Special thanks to the Malthouse Theatre, Maxine Beneba Clarke and Behrouz Boochani for making this happen.
