Relics of Torture - Ep.1
Hundreds of people are currently under the lock and key of the Australian government for simply trying to come to Australia by boat. Their captivity is designed to scare others fleeing war, violence, and persecution out of seeking refuge on Australia’s shores. They’ve become political pawns in the game of Australian border policy. These vulnerable men, women, and children are left in limbo, never arriving, yet unable to return home.Join us as we follow life in limbo for Mostafa Azimitabar, a Kurdish musician from Iran—who you’ll come to know as Moz. We’ll try to uncover the ways Australia can end the inhumane treatment of refugees and give Moz his freedom, while also protecting Australians and preventing asylum seekers from drowning at sea.CONTENT WARNING: This episode includes descriptions of torture, self-harm, and suicide.
