Justice for Reza Barati: Forum and Film Screening

Monday, February 17, 2020 - 18:00 to 20:00

Location: Citiplace Community Centre, 378 Wellington St, Perth, Western Australia 6000

17 February marks 6 years since Reza Barati was brutally murdered while detained by the Australian government on Manus Island, PNG. At the time, then Immigration Minister and now Prime Minister, Scott Morrison attempted to blame Reza Barati for his own death. Since Reza was murdered, 11 other men have died on Manus and Nauru under Australia's lethal "offshore processing regime". Each death is a result of systemic violence that continues to this day.

To mark this anniversary we invite you to join us for an important film and discussion. We will screen Lukas Schrank’s 2015 short film ‘Nowhere Line: voices from Manus Island’, which recounts the night that Reza Barati was killed and discuss how we can hold Scott Morrison to account, dismantle Australia’s abusive border policies and secure justice for refugees.

We acknowledge that this gathering will take place on the unceded land of the Whadjuk Noongar people.
