  • No Friend But The Mountains

    Once I began this book I had to keep reading. Here is a peaceful individual, a highly educated scholar, who finds himself imprisoned on Manus Island. His only crime was to leave his homeland searching for a better life. His experiences will stay we me for a long time and I feel ashamed that our country has locked him up. Please read his story!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Australia's Gulags

    Many years ago I read a book written by Alexander Solzhenitsyn 'The Gulag Archipelago'. This book is in that vein and questions every Australian's responsibility for allowing the creation of the prison islands. It will one day be required reading for history students.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Standing with you!

    Brilliant! Got to be a classic of prison writings-The writing found its way into and amongst my brain cells -all my cells in fact- if you will pardon the emphasis on cells in this context - hopefully the eventual key to his and his compatriots cells opening the doors to freedom. Thank you Behrouz! Congratulations and thanks to all involved in the translation ,production and publishing of Behrouz 's book. Apologies for Australia's shocking treatment of those who seek asylum. Apologies for our involvement in wars that led them to doing so. Solidarity with Behrouz and all of his fellow prisoners on Manus . Thank you!

    Thanks for your feedback!
