We talk about the difference in the treatment of these refugees (some of whom are from Afghanistan) compared to those from Kosovo several years ago, appraisal of the media coverage of the situation at Woomera ("Did you get the report over there that parents were sewing their kids' lips together . . . Total lies put out by the government."), the action itself (why and how it happened, "We just wanted to make human contact with them . . . We were just sort of led there and no one expected what happened."), and the experience of liberating some of the detainees (Ruth describe the "intense experience" she had running hand and hand with one of the detainees).
