Mohamed joins Amnesty Ambassador Craig Foster from the Park Hotel Prison. Mohamed, along with most of the refugees detained there has recently tested positive to COVID-19.
He shares his story in hopes of inspiring Australians to take action. From persecution in his homeland, to fleeing and attempting to find refuge in Australia, to being held in detention for nine years.
Mohamed’s story, like so many others, is a testament to the cruelty of Australia’s offshore detention policy and yet another example of why it must end.
New Zealand has a standing offer to resettle all detained refugees, like Mohamed. The Australian government has so far refused to accept this offer.
