Around 14,000 refugees in Indonesia are marking a 10-year wait for resettlement into other countries including Australia, with protests and pleas for help.

Refugees in Indonesia are unable to receive an education, obtain working rights to support their families overseas, or get a driver's licence.  Now advocates and the Refugee Council of Australia are calling on the Federal Government to consider a policy overhaul to let some of those refugees into the country.
