Film screening: The Valley Rebels
What happens to young refugees?
If on your drive home from work you encountered a group of lost teenage kids, would you stop and help them? That’s what the people from a valley in the French Alps do, and they are being prosecuted for it. Because the kids are “unaccompanied minor” refugees and the authorities don’t know what to do with them.
Amongst the daily news about the “refugee crisis” in Europe, the situation of children is often overlooked. And closer to home, there are about 45 children held in the Australian detention centre on Nauru.
Come and watch the film The Valley Rebels and join a discussion about young refugees and what happens to them.
