Mark Isaacs
Nauru Burning


Book Launch
Friday 7th April
6pm


Amnesty Refugee Action Group are holding a book launch at Petrarch's Book Shop, featuring Mark Isaacs new book “Nauru Burning”.

In Nauru Burning Mark Isaacs explores the secrecy around Australia's offshore immigration detention centres to reveal a climate of fear and hopelessness, culminating in the riot and fire which destroyed much of the Nauru regional processing centre in July 2013.

Ultimately, it is a comment on the lack of accountability and oversight for service providers in the deliberately remote and closed environment of Australia’s offshore detention centres.

Nauru Burning is a short but important read at 78 pages and is another dark chapter in our country’s treatment of people seeking protection.’
