- On this episode we give some updates on the Let Them Stay campaign, which calls for refugees to remain in Australia rather than being forced into offshore detention. - We mainly focus on a recent Let Them Stay banner drop at the Melbourne Art Centre. - We play an interview with Gaye Demanuele on this action and Coggo from the Melbourne Street Medics on this action, as well as how the Brisbane health care workers refusing to release babies back to the harm of offshore detention are upholding their duty of care. - The statement from the two activists who did the banner drop. - Defending the effectiveness of the action despite critiques and shitty media coverage. - Extending the compassion for children to highlight the problems of all mandatory detention and offshore processing. - Extending concern for a dolphin killed for selfies to more widespread animal abuse. - The successful campaign to send child abuse survivors to confront Cardinal Pell. - For more information on this episode and for links to all of the stories and clips from it, go to:
