On 31 January 2015, the Berry Amnesty Local Action group held a public forum featuring Mark Isaac, author of The Undesirables, and a panel comprised of Bede Carmody of Amnesty International Australia, Dianne Hiles of Chilout, Madeline Gleeson of the Andrew & Renata Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law at UNSW and local community member and psychiatrist Rob McMurdo.
The forum explored issues associated with Australia’s asylum seeker and
offshore detention policies in the 25th anniversary of Australia’s ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Local community member Bill Pigott moderated the forum.
