This episode covers the High Court ruling that offshore detention is legal, which clears the way for the Australian government to return about 250 asylum seekers in Australia, including 37 babies, to Nauru.

We also play some of the speeches from outside the Department of Immigration at the Melbourne ‪#‎LetThemStay‬ rally for refugees (embedded at the bottom of this post). See the Soundcloud description for more information on the speakers.

We finish the episode by discussing: getting active with the Refugee Action Collective, different activist tactics (check out episode 118 for more on this), Amnesty International find that the Australian government paid people smugglers and the How to Make Trouble and Influence People 2016 Diary.
