Following the killing of 50 Muslims by an Australian terrorist, local security agencies face questions of whether they overlooked the threat posed by white extremists.I think we need to talk about extremism more generally, not limit it to certain groups … It’s got to start at the leadership level. There’s a big role for the media as well.
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.
