Protests on Manus as Australia's High Court makes ruling

From , 3:05 pm on 18 August 2017

Protests continued on Manus Island this week at the Australian detention centre in Papua New Guinea.

Refugees and asylum seekers are demonstrating against their covert eviction from the camps by Australian authorities and the attempts to force them into the Manus community.

This is against the backdrop of Australia's High Court upholding its government's right to detain asylum seekers offshore despite the PNG government ruling the camp unconstitutional.

Johnny Blades asked Dominic Godfrey about the latest legal challenge.
