Alanna Maycock is a paediatric nurse and staunch opponent of the recently repealed Border Force Act - a provision of which intended to silence healthcare workers and prevent them from describing the atrocious conditions faced by refugees and people seeking asylum in on and off-shore detention centres.
Having worked in Villawood and Nauru detention centres, Alanna felt it her duty to speak out about what she experienced.
Alanna's brave opposition and fierce advocacy helped ensure the repeal, but she says the fight isn't over yet; now, the employment of more foreign staff and fewer Australians intends to once again stop the truth about conditions in detention from reaching Australian shores. Join us for what will certainly be an eye-opening and passion-igniting discussion of contemporary refugee and asylum-seeker health issues!
