Description 

After six years of incarceration in the Manus Island detention centre in Papua New Guinea, Kurdish-Iranian writer and journalist Behrouz Boochani was amongst the last detainees to be moved to Port Moresby in late 2019.

Boochani’s book, No Friend But the Mountains, offers a tremendous, lyrical expression of the human spirit.

He joins the NTWF via video link to discuss hope, nonviolent resistance, and the power of art to name injustice and create political change.
