Poetic Justice: Contemporary Australian Voices on Equality and Human Rights
Right Now,André Dao,Roselina Press
Surely human rights abuse is something experienced by people overseas, in far-away countries, but not in Australia, not anymore.
Poetic Justice is a collection of essays, fiction, poetry and visual art about human rights issues in Australia—issues that haven’t gone away, or gone elsewhere. From asylum seekers to Indigenous land rights; from the surveillance state to police racism, this anthology chronicles contemporary Australian debates about social justice. Each of the works is an exercise in compassion as Poetic Justice seeks to recover the humanity too often lost in our discussions of human rights.
Poetic Justice is also an anthology of work published by Right Now, a not-for-profit media organisation with a focus on human rights issues in Australia. Since 2005 we have covered human rights issues through accessible and engaging online, print and radio media.
Featuring work by Malcolm Fraser, Julian Burnside, Anne Manne, Tony Birch, Pat Grant and a foreword by Christos Tsiolkas.
