He has now written ‘the story of anguished souls, the asylum seekers and those who perished at sea’. With both major political parties engaged in a race to the bottom determined to circumvent our legal responsibilities to people seeking refuge in this country this book couldn’t be more timely.

‘Overboard’ is a graphic expose of the human suffering and misery endured by vulnerable people under Australia’s asylum seeker policies during the Howard era. It also includes testimony from SIEVX survivors.
