 First up on today's program, Marisa speaks with veteran activist Pamela Curr, about a landmark court ruling that paves the way to end the indefinite detention of asylum seekers, whilst this is an important step in right direction, she also explains why there is more work to be done for the justice and human rights of all refugees and asylum seekers that have suffered the damage of our government's cruel and inhumane policies.

 Next, Marisa speaks with Nicole Lee from People with Disability Australia about the final report of the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability and the 222 recommendations to be made to improve laws, policies, structures, and practices to ensure a more inclusive and just society that supports people with disability to live free from violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.
