          We who cannot be named is the story of Habib, a tireless activist and fighter for the rights of the persecuted Rohingyan minority in Myanmar, now a refugee facing the prospect of lifelong 
          detention in Australia. Habib arrived on Ashmore reef on 29 December 2009 and was 
          recognized as a refugee in 2010. 
          His book (written in French) recounts the recent history of his persecuted people 
          and his own odyssey to reach Australia, where, instead of the freedom he craved, he has only 
          faced further persecution, confinement and mental torture. 

          Habib’s book is the fullest account ever given of the psychological effects of mandatory 
          detention. It presents the harrowing costs of Australia’s asylum seeker policy from the point of 
          view of
          one of its victims, detailing in unprecedented depth the human cost of detention: bureaucratic indifference, senseless cruelty, suicide, self-harm, despair.
