Illawarra Forum Annual General Meeting

Our AGM will be held Wednesday 11th November 2015 at the fabulous new SYFS Shellharbour Hub from 10am.

The AGM will feature guest speaker Mark Isaacs – author of The Undesirables described on ABC’s Big Ideas as “a gobsmacking eyewitness account of the shambles and the shame that is Australia’s offshore processing policy”.

Mark will speak about his time working in Nauru from 2012.

In October 2012, Mark was employed by the Salvation Army to work at the Nauru Regional Processing Centre. He eventually resigned from the Salvation Army in June 2013 and spoke out publicly against the government’s No Advantage policy.

Mark’s book, The Undesirables, accounts for his time inside one of Australia’s most infamous detention centres. Since leaving Nauru, Mark continued his passion for humanitarian work and was employed for two years as a social worker at an asylum seekers settlement agency in Sydney. He is now traveling the world as a freelance writer.
