    Melbourne Refugee and asylum seeker rights rally Saturday 27 July 2013

This World Refugee Day, teleSUR takes an in-depth look at what being forced out of a country means and what provokes humans to flee.

First world countries cause many of the world’s refugees directly through invasion and intervention, and economically through exploitation and colonization policies, looting countries of their own natural resources. Then, when those refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan, Honduras, Libya, and so on seek asylum in first world countries, and in countries like Egypt and Indonesia, they are offered no protection, mistreated, discriminated against, locked up, and often either left to die (drown at sea) or are directly murdered on the border (for example the US-Mexico border).

Its time to help refugees get to safety, to close all detention centers, and to look after them wherever they decide to settle.
