We discuss the Biloela family, including Tharunicaa and Kopika picture above, who came to Australia from Sri Lanka due to the persecution of the Tamil people. We also discuss refugee law, as well as the state of the refugee issue and refugee rights activism in Australia.

We finish the episode by promoting the upcoming Rally for Refugee Rights: Permanent Visas not Discrimination. This rally is on the 25th of July around Australia. Here is the Facebook page for the Melbourne event – for those outside of Melbourne, look online to find a rally near you!
