Nauru is in meltdown with an escalating medical and mental health crisis as a result of the damage done by offshore detention. Despite Border Force trying to fight doctors’ recommendations in court, almost 30 children have been brought off the island, some after spending weeks refusing to eat.Many of the 1000 asylum seekers and refugees who remain on Nauru are barred from US resettlement and are losing hope. Join us to hear first hand accounts of the crisis on Nauru and how we can fight to #BringThemHere

Speakers
Natasha Blucher – ASRC Detention Rights Advocate
Natasha worked on Nauru for Save the Children before being wrongly targeted by then Immigration Minister Scott Morrison along with nine other Save the Children workers and taken off the Island. The Immigration Dept was later forced to apologise.
