WHAT IS GENOCIDE? Worldwide slavery, internment and work camps, slave labor, concentration and death camps. Sex trafficking and worldwide sexual slavery. Not since the Holocaust has there been so many "little schools" and concentration camps in outlying areas of the world. In Alaska, there's a place near railroads where jobs for the military "were" planned for a million bed mental facility. Be serious about opposing things; join us if you can!

Have you heard about Go Back To Where You Came From? It's an SBS TV series that puts six people in the shoes of asylum seekers for a month, as they retrace the journeys refugees take to Australia.
Along the way, they're confronted with the real experiences of refugees: immigration raids in Malaysia, harsh living in a Kenyan refugee camp, and traumatic conditions of conflict zones in Iraq and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Last year's series changes the hearts and minds of those who watched it - and this year's season is shaping up to be even bigger.
This is a rare chance to reach everyday Australians in their living rooms. That's why we're asking you to invite a few people over and hold a screening. We'll give you all the help you need to get started and make your event a success. Click here to get started.
Last year's season of Go Back To Where You Came From was watched by almost a million people. It helped Australians see what it'd be like to be an asylum seeker - an Afghan Hazara fleeing ethnic cleansing at the hands of the Taliban, or a family escaping war in Africa - and the difficult choices they have to make.
Our research has shown that community views around 'boat people' are largely based on myths, not facts - the myth that seeking asylum by boat is illegal, or that there is an orderly queue that they're jumping. And that's the reason 'Go Back' is so powerful; it cuts through all the misinformation, and puts the experiences of real people back in the spotlight.
It's up to you how big you want to make your event - whether it's a one-off viewing party in your living room with a few friends, or booking out a room at a local pub, community hall, library or cinema. Either way, we'll give you some great tips and support to make it fun and worthwhile.
Regardless of whether you believe your friends are already supportive of refugees or not, this is a great opportunity to come together, watch something thought-provoking and talk about it. Chances are they'll go home and talk to other people, helping start a new conversation about asylum seekers.
