by Anonymous User — July 29, 2012

September 2001. A trip is made in solidarity with asylum seekers in the Woomera detention centre. During the visit riot police attack the refugees with water cannons, tear gas and batons for over 20 minutes. In a David vs Golliath situation some refugees throw stones at the forces of order. Meanwhile 260 Australian activists, kept back by the state police, watch horrified from about 200 metres distance.
