    “Help us keep our sanity, remember our humanity.” Song from Manus

    Asylum Seeker ‘Moz’ releases song recorded in Manus Island detention centre
    Kurdish refugee Mostafa ‘Moz’ Azimitabar today released a music video and song he recorded from his detention on Manus Island.
    Moz, 31, has been detained for four years.   The vocals for his song – “All the Same” – were recorded on a mobile phone and, with the footage; found their way out of Manus to artists in Australia. In the clip, Moz sings into the camera, surrounded by tall wire fences, and implores all Australians to “help us keep our sanity, remember our humanity.”
    Moz said the song was created to bring attention to the plight of himself and other refugees.  “We have been left in political limbo for four years now.   The conditions are hellish and how they treat us is deplorable. I hope people who are listening to my song will understand our desperation, frustration and fear,” he said.Read more
