Fairly harrowing dramatisation of true events at an Illegal Immigrant Detention Centre in South Australia. I’ve long been critical of Australia’s policies and practices regarding refugees and this 6 part series saw many of those stories, manifest. Most gruelling of all to deal with was the way in which holding sway over another person’s life becomes little more than an office job – implementing policies and procedures which make it impossible to engage with a system on any terms other than those which they expressly allow. And if someone at the top started asking tough questions at any point, you’d hear a LOT of “I was just following orders”. Regardless, it certainly didn’t endear me any closer to Port Augusta. 👍
