Melbourne: Rally: Bring Back Baby Asha

25 June 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

ACTION: This Thursday June 25, 6:30pm, Fed Square.

Asha

Asha was born in Darwin this year. Just over two weeks ago she and her parents were roughly woken at 4:30 AM in Melbourne and secretly transported to the detention camp on Nauru. No warning, no word to their lawyer.

On Nauru she is being housed in a damp, mouldy tent. She has had trouble feeding and is at risk of illness due to the conditions in the camp.

Up to 17 other babies born in Australia await the same fate – unless we take action.

Asha’s mum has asked us to do everything we can to help get her baby off Nauru.

So we’re staging a series of peaceful rallies to draw attention to Asha’s situation and to demand that she’s brought back to Australia and that no other babies are sent off to Nauru.

Our first rally is in Melbourne on Thursday evening. Details here:http://bit.ly/bringbackasha
