Performing Sovereignty 2a - Behrouz quote

Deathscapes

‘Only a rigorous analysis of a colonial presence in Australia and its tactics in the region can disclose the reality of violence in these island prisons.

This issue must be understood as the annihilation of human beings, the incarceration of human beings within the history of modern Australia; it is a long history, a comprehensive history, it is intertwined with its colonial history.’

Behrouz Boochani, Kurdish journalist held in limbo by the Australian government on Manus Island since 2013
