‘Fair go’ protests for detained refugees

Prominent civil liberties lawyer Julian Burnside said refugees in hotel and offshore detention were being treated worse than criminals.

"Every human being has the right to seek asylum," he said.

"Why do we treat these people so badly? It's because we are lied to by our parliamentarians. They lie to us and it's almost impossible to get the truth out of them."
