I had to point out this amazing thing that has just happened in Australia. How amazing is this? Behrouz Boochani an Iranian Kurdish Journalist won Victoria’s richest literary award! He won $100,000 for his non fiction book that documents torturous experience of refugees on Manus Island. He wrote the book by texting Australia, to a translator via WhatsApp. How phenomenal. He wrote this book over years. He has won this award but is still denied from entering Australia. When will we stop this barbaric practice?
