About this Event

Hear from the doctors who risked imprisonment to speak out for refugees held in Papua New Guinea and Nauru.

Hundreds of people who sought asylum in Australia by boat are now held in offshore detention, in Papua New Guinea and Nauru.Doctors have had their their medical decisions repeatedly overridden by politicians and bureaucrats, who want to prevent people from getting treatment in Australia.Despite being threatened with imprisonment, they have continued to speak out."If I would have played it by the book I'd have said nothing and watched these patients die." - Former Chief Medical Officer Dr Nick Martin

Filmed over four years in ten countries, this film goes behind hospital doors to hear from the clinicians who worked on the islands, and the people held there, who spoke out to save lives.Their voices led to the passing of the Medevac Law earlier this year, which ensured medical decisions remained with doctors. But the Australian government wants to repeal it and a decision will be made very soon.

There has never been a more important time to spread the message that medical decisions should remain with doctors.

Let's amplify doctors voices and stand in solidarity with those still held in Papua New Guinea and Nauru.
