Australia Refugee Testimonial

Australia Refugee Testimonial
Sudanese Refugee Aziz Adam was held captive at the Australian refugee detention center on Christmas Island and said "They just want is to die. For the last three years we were under heavy, systematic torture (which) aim to force us to go back… Hundreds of us lost their minds completely. They want to force us to go back to our country, and then when we deny, we say we don’t want to go back because we don’t have safety, we will be killed, they tell us, okay, we will offer you resettlement in PNG. But the reality is in PNG there is no safety at all. We started to plead with them, we don’t want to go to Australia, please leave us or let other countries like New Zealand or Canada take us, but the Australian government is refusing those countries."

Lebanese Refugee Ahmed Trad was held in an Australia refugee detention center and said "My Mum passed away when I was in here, in this detention center. My sister got married, and I’m here. My step-mum got pregnant and the child died and I’m here. I have no feeling toward my family. They’ve been away from my eyes and my heart. If the Australian government, they want to make us engineers… they can do. But they didn’t chose this way, they just chose to kill us, to kill our feeling, to kill our dream, our future, to not be ambitious anymore. In cold blood."
