Lawsuit against Youth Detention Centre in WA & Australia "reopening" for refugees and temporary visa holders

Monday, 22 November 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

This week, Marisa interviews Aunty Megan Krakouer and Gerry Georgatos from the National Suicide Prevention & Trauma Recovery Project about a class action lawsuit against Banksia Hill Youth Detention Facility in WA. Former inmates are suing the centre over conditions which observers say condemn children as young as 11 to a life of trauma and disadvantage. 

Later, Marisa speaks with Scott Cosgriff, Senior Lawyer at the Human Rights Law Centre, about stranded refugees and people on temporary visas for whom there is no plan in regards to Australia's "reopening".
