Story of refugee from South Africa

Allan Leas fled Apartheid South Africa in the late '70s. Now he's started telling his story online. The first chapter of Allan's story makes compelling reading and gives a very honest and intelligent insight into what it's like to be a refugee. It's interesting that lots of things about the asylum system haven't really changed since then. In fact, as Allan himself observes, they're probably even worse now.

Check Allan out here.

Allan now works for The European Council on Refugees and Exiles. I'll definitely be reading as he continues to post his story.
