Disturbing accounts come to light about conditions in the island’s detention centr
The following letters, written by asylum seekers on Nauru in the past three months, were provided to the Monthly. They are accounts of conditions in the detention centre on the island and the state of mind of those detained in it.
We are publishing them because we believe the right to be heard is fundamental. It is the least asylum seekers deserve, particularly those detained indefinitely.
These are informal translations of the original texts, which have also been provided to the Moss review.
