First Hand Insight of Australia’s Brutal Refugee Centres

img_0057

Navven Nave Ravi  journeyed to Australia seeking refuge from the trouble in Sri Lanka.

Upon arriving in Australia he found that this wealthy generally safe country was not going to provide him with the peaceful life he so badly yearned for and needed.

Drawing and writing poetry was an outlet for Navven while he spent 3 years at Nauru Regional Processing Centre and in Melbourne Immigration Transit Accommodation.

Now living in Perth these drawings and the poetry have given him an opportunity to share with others the painful experiences he endured in those 3 years locked up despite having committed no crime.

His book From Hell to Hell has already been launched in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth and the first print run of the book has sold out.

With the help of activists a crowd funding campaign has been set up to print 1000 more books.

On Monday April 18 I spoke to Navven on 4ZZZ’s AnarchyShow.
