"Are we there yet... in the race to rock bottom on refugee rights?" asked Dianne Hiles from Children Out of Detention (ChilOut) at a November 8 protest in Sydney against the detention of asylum seekers by the Australian on Nauru Island.

As the mass hunger strike by asylum seekers detained by the Australian government on Nauru entered its eighth day, with around 300 people refusing food, refugee groups held solidarity simultaneous protests in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, and Darwin. Video by Peter Boyle/Green Left TV.
