Interesting Saturday night. 5:30pm at Federation Square, asylum seekers performed an interpretive dance/theatre piece. An emotional & moving depiction of life as a refugee – powerlessness, vulnerability, joy, heart-break. People who desperately want to get on with life & start anew but instead find themselves trapped in limbo under Australia’s harsh, uncaring asylum-seeker policies – many of which are illegal & violate their most basic human rights.
