Go Back To Where You Came From

Immigrants , assuylum seekers. We come across them all the time. We often finding our selves giving them hard time with accusations that they are here to take our jobs and messing up opportunities for us. The reality or the predicament for them is beyond our imagination if you are from a comfortable economy and not experience hardship the way they have.

In Australia SBS created a show :

Six ordinary Australians agree to challenge their preconceived notions about refugees and asylum seekers by embarking on a confronting 25-day journey. Tracing in reverse the journeys that refugees have taken to reach Australia, they travel to some of the most dangerous and desperate corners of the world, with no idea what is in store for them along the way.

Deprived of their wallets, phones and passports, they board a leaky refugee boat, are rescued mid-ocean, experience immigration raids in Malaysia, live in a Kenyan refugee camp and visit slums in Jordan before ultimately making it to the Democratic Republic of Congo and Iraq, protected by UN Peacekeepers and the US military. For some of them it’s their first time abroad. For all of them, it’s an epic journey and the most challenging experience of their lives

Its a eye opener, i managed to watch 1 episode and i will be watching the rest very soon. Its education, you need to see what a assuylum seeker goes through. Just when you think you have the biggest problems mankind has ever had, this gives your prespective.

A Must Watch!
