ChangeMakers (AUS)

This is the second part of an exploration into how anger can be channelled into powerful actions. Part two comes from Brisbane, Australia where a simple vigil outside a hospital turned into a national flashpoint that overturned a decade of political consensus on Australia's refugee policy. Remarkably, when they began the organisers of the vigil didn't know what they were even aiming to achieve.

In many parts of the world politicians are increasingly scapegoating refugees, and in the process denying them their human rights. But there is one country that has decided to treat refugees with basic human decency. Uganda doesn't lock up its refugees. Instead, they live in settlements with freedom of movement, access to land and education. What can the rest of the world learn from Uganda?
