The Amnesty NSW Refugee Network presents a film screening of Salam Neighbour! Salam Neighbour is an award-winning feature documentary and campaign to connect the world to refugees. In an effort to better understand refugee life, two American journalists spent one month living alongside displaced families in the Za’atari refugee camp. As the first filmmakers ever allowed by the United Nations to be given a tent and registered inside a refugee camp, they are able to get a never-before-seen look into the world’s most pressing crisis.

Given the Federal Government's new proposed legislation to ban refugees and asylum seekers on Manus Island and Nauru from ever coming to Australia, it is vital that we continue, as a community, to take a stand against such human rights abuses.

The Amnesty NSW Refugee Network is hosting a screening of this event at a critical moment, with more refugees today than anytime in the last century. More than 4.8 million people have fled Syria alone to escape the atrocities of war. Right now, we are at risk of losing a generation of youth, further destabilising the region, and perpetuating a cycle of violence and poverty.
