Part 1: How Australia put 30,000 people in limbo Temporary

    • Politics

In the first part of the Temporary podcast we meet Zaki, who fled a Taliban death warrant when he was a teenager to find somewhere safe. Instead, he found himself impounded in the politics of fear that Australian leaders have been stoking for decades. He is one of 30,000 refugees and asylum seekers in the ‘legacy caseload’, kept silent by a system that holds permanent protection out of reach. We know the stories of Manus Island and Nauru, but what about the people stuck here in our midst? Part 2: No right to study, no right to work A legal limbo without end: the people who came by boat but never found home in Australia
