Biloela: URGENT ACTION
21 December 2018 @ 11:15 am - 12:00 pm
11am-12 noon – Friday, 21 December 2018 – Biloela – Urgent vigil for Priya, Nades and the girls – in Kariboe Street outside the Arcade, Biloela at 11am (QLD time) Facebook event here
URGENT HELP NEEDED – PLEASE TAKE ACTION AND SHARE
We’ve just learned the Federal Court in Melbourne will hand down it’s decision on Priya’s appeal at 12 noon today (Friday, 21 December 2018).
We hope and pray for a positive outcome. But we know that last time, Border Force handed Priya and Nades a deportation notice just one day after the court’s decision. We’re scared that while we’re celebrating with family and friends, Border Force will try to smuggle Priya, Nades and their Queensland-born girls from Australia to danger.
This time, we can’t afford to wait for a deportation notice. Today (Friday) during business hours, please take the following actions:
1. Phone the offices of both the Minister for Home Affairs, Peter Dutton (02 6277 7860) and the Minister for Immigration, David Coleman (02 6277 7770) and politely explain to their staff that you would like the Minister(s) to immediately use their power to intervene and allow this family to remain in Australia. Please also seek a guarantee that Border Force will not issue a deportation notice during the holiday period.
2. If you are in Biloela, please join the emergency vigil in Kariboe Street outside the Arcade at 11am (QLD time) (www.facebook.com/events/519168161918531)
3. If you are in Melbourne, please join an emergency vigil outside the Federal Court (cnr of La Trobe and William Street) at 11.15am (www.facebook.com/events/262716984420245)
