Presented by Jessica Minshall and Tessa Dowdell

Nine detainees are continuing a rooftop protest at Villawood Detention Centre this morning, with a further 150 on a hunger strike. This comes of the back of another rooftop protest at Villawood on Monday, the suicide of Fijian asylum seeker Josef Raulini, and uprisings and escapes from Darwin Immigration Centre earlier this month. 5000 refugees are currently imprisoned across Australia and the message is coming through loud and clear, in desperate circumstances, to end mandatory detention.This week's guests are Rachel Rowe from No-one is Illegal and  Shen Narayanasamy from the Anti-deportation Alliance - you can contact them at nodeportations [at]
