Amnesty NSW Refugee Network Presents Salam Neighbour
The Amnesty NSW Refugee Network presents a film screening of Salam Neighbour! Salam Neighbour is an award-winning feature documentary and campaign to connect the world to refugees. In an effort to better understand refugee life, two American journalists spent one month living alongside displaced families in the Za’atari refugee camp. As the first filmmakers ever allowed by the United Nations to be given a tent and registered inside a refugee camp, they are able to get a never before seen look into the world’s most pressing crisis.
With the current progress in terms of the Border Force Act, and the upcming Doctors' March in Sydney on November 5th in Hyde Park, the momentum is buidling in the fight for refugee and asylum seeker welfare. Given the Federal Government's new proposed legislation to ban refugees and asylum seekers on Manus Island and Nauru from ever coming to Australia, it is vital that we continue to (as a community) take a stand against such human rights abuses.
The Amnesty NSW Refugee Network wishes to host a screening of this event, at a a critical moment, with more refugees today than anytime in the last century. More than 4.8 million people have fled Syria alone to escape the atrocities of war. Right now, we are at risk of losing a generation of youth, further destabilizing the region, and perpetuating a cycle of violence and poverty.
