by Einfeld, Marcus R | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2001Description: 23 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: The 20th annual Sambell Oration, Wednesday 17 October 2001 at the Shell Conference Centre, Melbourne Summary: 53 years ago this December, a war-ravaged and war-weary world ushered in a new international order with what was called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It was a bold and brilliant document full of words, phrases and concepts that everyone wanted to hear. It spoke of recognising the inherent dignity and the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family as the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. It observed that disregard and contempt for human rights had resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind. It called for the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief, and freedom from fear and want, as the highest aspiration of the common people. It declared as essential that human rights should be protected by the rule of law.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A country too far : writings on asylum seekers /

by Scott, Rosie (ed.) | Keneally, Thomas (ed.).

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Viking 2013Description: 260 p.Notes: Contributors: Rodney Hall, Geraldine Brooks, John Tranter, Elliot Perlman, Debra Adelaide, Sue Woolfe, Dorothy Hewett, Robin de Crespigny, Christos Tsiolkas, Denise Leith, Raimond Gaita, Gail Jones, Les Murray, Arnold Zable, Stephanie Johnson, Kim Scott, Judith Wright, Rosie Scott, Bella Vendramini, Kathryn Heyman, Ouyang Yu, Alex Miller, Fiona McGregor, Judith Rodriguez, Anna Funder, Eva Hornung, and Tom Keneally.Summary: One of the central moral issues of our time is the question of asylum seekers, arguably the most controversial subject in Australia today. ; In this landmark anthology, twenty-seven of Australia's finest writers have focused their intelligence and creativity on the theme of the dispossessed, bringing a whole new perspective of depth and truthfulness to what has become a fraught, distorted war of words. This anthology confirms that the experience of seeking asylum - the journeys of escape from death, starvation, poverty or terror to an imagined paradise - is part of the Australian mindset and deeply embedded in our culture and personal histories. ; A Country Too Far is a tour de force of stunning fiction, memoir, poetry and essays. Edited by award-winning writers Rosie Scott and Thomas Keneally, and featuring contributors including Anna Funder, Christos Tsiolkas, Elliot Perlman, Gail Jones, Raimond Gaita, Les Murray, Rodney Hall and Geraldine Brooks, this rich anthology is by turns thoughtful, fierce, evocative, lyrical and moving, and always extraordinarily powerful.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
