Jacob Rice worked as a teacher in the Manus Island detention centre. Under the Border Force Act he is risking arrest by speaking about the conditions in the detention centre, but he spoke with the Paradigm Shift about the conditions for the detainees, about what it’s like for teachers trying to do their job there and about speaking the truth.
