Tamil people are fleeing violence in their homeland in Sri Lanka and facing border violence from the Australian government. This week we shed light on the Tamil struggle for freedom and the struggle to free refugees in Australia locked up by Australia's regime of border violence. First, we hear from Renuga Inpakumar, a spokesperson with the Tamil Refugee Council. Second, we hear from speeches given at pro-refugee rallies centred around the refugee detention Park hotel prison in Melbourne: including a speech by Lavanya Thavaraja, also a member of the Tamil Refugee Council;  Amanda Threlfall, Assistant Secretary of the Victorian Trades Hall Council and Federal Senator for the Greens, Lidia Thorpe.
