Eye Witness Accounts: Brisbane contingent reports back on the reality of the detention system in Darwin.

Over Easter, refugee activists from around the country joined a convergence on Darwin to visit inside and protest outside each of its three detention centres. We made contact with hundreds of refugees and more of the horrors of the detention system were revealed. Join us at the next reportback meeting to hear Brisbane activists report on what we saw and see the footage of:

-The Darwin Airport Lodge, prison to hundreds of refugee children

  • Wickham point Detention Centre, expanding in an isolated area outside of Darwin
  • Northern Immigration Detention Centre (NIDC) where there are chronic levels of self-harm and protests that have put the NIDC in a state of perpetual crisis.
  • The contact between the Refugee campaign, Aboriginal Rights Campaign
