Yet another beating on Manus – January 2019
Extract from Behrouz Boochani’s message on FB:
  • Yesterday (5 Jan 19) a refugee was beaten up by a guard on Manus. 
  • The guards on Manus and Nauru have been beating up innocent refugees in the past six years, over hundred times maybe. 
  • On Manus & Nauru there’s nowhere for us to go when we are mistreated.
  • We are standing outside the law but still subject to it.
  • A human may be able to survive physical torture and prison, but he/she can never get over humiliation.
  • When you beat up a refugee, you are not hurting them physically only, you’re taking their humanity and identity. Humiliation is the ultimate torture.

Remind the politicians of the urgent need
to avoid further harm and suffering for innocent people in detention
