Zareen Tag is a woman from the Hazara ethnic group in Afghanistan. Nearly all of the Afghans who have arrived by boat in Australia since 1999 come from group.

Zareen returned to Afghanistan in 2004 to record some of the history of persecution that the Hazaras have suffered.

The video she made is shocking, and explains completely why so many Hazaras have fled.

Remember too that when Zareen filmed this, it was a time of comparative peace in Afghanistan. Things have become much worse in the last two years.
