Melbourne: Protest: No Deportations to Danger

9 August 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Thursday 9th August – refugee advocates in Sydney and Melbourne are asking Qantas to publicly state that they will not participate in forcing Priya, Nades, Kopika or Tharunicaa (the little Biloela family) back to danger.

Join us to demand that Qantas refuse to take part in these, or any other future deportations.

Priya, Nades and their children Kopica and Tharunicaa remain in detention in Melbourne.

Only a final court appeal is preventing their deportation.

Join us to demand that Qantas refuse to take part in their, or any other future deportation.

  • Melbourne: 4PM-6PM – Jetstar Corporate Office – 79-81 Victoria Pde, Collingwood Facebook event:http://bit.ly/2nhuU9i

Rally at Jetstar Corporate Office calling on Qantas and all airlines not to deport Priya, Nades, Huyen or any asylum seekers to danger.

Speakers
Paul Lee – Huyen’s husband
Brad Coath – Home to Bilo campaign
Marcella Brassett – ASRC
Umesh Perinpanayagam – Tamil Refugee Council

Commercial airlines have flown countless asylum seekers to danger. In the US United, American, and Frontier have told Trump they won’t fly separated children of immigrants and asylum seekers other than to return them to their parents. In the UK Virgin won’t fly deportations of the Windrush generation. In Germany Lufthansa pilots have refused on hundreds of occasions to fly asylum seekers to danger. It’s time for Qantas to step up and stop aiding the Australian government commit human rights abuses.

Last month, another Tamil refugee, Thileepan, was forcibly deported and faces permanent separation from his wife and 10-month-old daughter. Priya, Nades and their children Kopica and Tharunicaa remain in detention in Melbourne. Only a final court appeal is
preventing their deportation.

Vietnamese asylum seeker Huyen also faces deportation and indefinite separation from her daughter Isabella and husband Paul.

Join us to demand that Qantas refuse to take part in these, or any other future deportations.
