Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International

With Julian Burnside.
Julian says:
"Lest we forget is one of the most resonant phrases in our national mythology. We say it, or think it, on 11th November each year and on Anzac day. But forgetting lies at the heart of this country. We forget that boat people who come here to ask for protection are not illegal in any sense; we forget that there is no queue; we forget that the number of boat people who get here is very small by any measure. Worst of all: we forget that boat people are human beings.

Amnesty serves as our conscience. It reminds us, lest we forget."
