Listening to tracks from Shamindran this week for our final Manus reocrding project show.
Finishing while the song Cruel Policy by Farhad Bandesh
Listening to the archieves from the Manus recording project. This week we are starting to listen to the "How are you today" recordings from 2018.
These men, seeking asylum by boat, were forcibly transferred to Manus Island by the Australian government nearly seven years ago. Now, they are held in hotels or detention centres in Port Moresby, Melbourne or Brisbane. Some have gained safety in other counrties also.
We have played a selection from "How are you today?"
