‘The Day Australians Became Refugees’

‘Let’s remember that we are the people who put their children in boats because the water was safer than the land’

Ahmad Rezaei, Hazara Spokesperson at community fundraiser for Victoria’s bushfire refugees


no one leaves home unless home chases you
fire under feet
hot blood in your belly
it’s not something you ever thought of doing

 … 

you have to understand,
that no one puts their children in a boat
unless the water is safer than the land

Warsan Shire, ‘Home’
