Taking Risks: A Father and Son's Walk To End Mandatory Detention

Refugee Rights

"The Aboriginal Tent Embassy gave us permission to say that the elders of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy expressly welcome refugees to Australia. I think it was amazing that they would do that; and I actually think that was a political coup."

Criminal lawyer Adam Richards and his 13-year-old son Ned walked from Adelaide to Canberra earlier this year, visiting the Aboriginal Tent Embassy and presenting a petition urging the Federal Government to end "mandatory indefinite offshore detention of refugees". Alfred explores what inspired this act of protest from two everyday Australians.
