I went with small group tonight to the launch of the film We Will Be Remembered by Jessie Taylor, an active refugee advocate. I admit that I had my reservations - in many ways I've given up on the political process to show any humanity or justice. It was easier not to think about it, not to care. After all, I am one of the lucky people by birth and education and career. Why should I worry about these people who were surely terrorists, disease carriers, queue-jumpers? Surely it was someone else's problem.

I was wrong.

There is nothing that demonstrates our humanity more than the way that we treat others. And the way we treat those both without wealth or power or fame. This film is an indictment of Australia. Watch a trailer. Watch the film.
