Kasumi Refugee Support Youth on Jacqy Chan

In Mid-December, three of our members — Pham Quang Dung, Naoki Moriyama and Ilaria Canali, together with Dr Blackwood had a great discussion with Jacqueline, an Indonesian YouTuber, about the group and the issues of refugees and immigration in Japan. In particular, we talked about the group’s origin, our objectives and the range of activities we engage in. We also talked about the difficult process of applying for refugee status of asylum-seekers and the isolated conditions of immigration detention centers in Japan.

Kasumi Refugee Support Youth on Bento Bureau Podcast

Last week, three of our members, MinhAnh Nguyen, Naoki Moriyama and Reina Hayashi, appeared in a podcast with Bento Bureau to talk about the group’s support for refugees and asylum seekers in Japan. In the podcast, we shared our stories of how we got together to form Kasumi Refugee Support Youth, how we became aware of the refugee situation in Japan, what we know about Japan’s immigration detention centres, and what we want the group to achieve in the future.
