Families Behind Bars are the real life stories of several families, from the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and the United States, who bear horrendous burdens having loved ones detained in foreign prisons. Kay Danes writes from her own experience of being imprisoned in Laos under false charges and includes her own story in the collection. Kay has revisited many of these people and in this new edition, will update you on what is happening to them today. These stories are real-life accounts that can and do happen to ordinary people in our community. We are not immune to human rights violations and we cannot afford to take our rights for granted. We may, without any warning, be plunged into a rollercoaster of despair! Chapters include interviews with some of the Bali 9, Schapelle Corby and families that have children on death row.
