Qantas is meeting with human rights advocates!
Aug 10, 2018 —
On a Friday night three weeks ago, my gorgeous friend Priya called me in tears. She and her husband Nades had just been told they would be forced from Australia within days.
As Priya’s legal team worked frantically to keep Priya, Nades and their two Australian-born girls in Australia long enough to lodge an appeal, we knew we had to do more.
Days before, we’d heard that US airlines were refusing to fly children separated from their parents by immigration officials.
So we launched a new petition calling on Qantas and 11 other airlines to refuse to fly Priya, Nades, Kopika and Tharunicaa anywhere but home to Biloela.
Now, a powerful coalition of human rights advocates are calling on Qantas to refuse to participate in forcing asylum seekers like Priya and Nades from Australia to danger.
And Qantas has agreed to meet with them - tomorrow!
Today, I need your help show Qantas how many people want to bring Priya, Nades, Kopika and Tharunicaa home to Biloela.
Please take a photo of yourself with this sign (bit.ly/QantasDontDeport), post it on facebook or twitter and tag Qantas by including @Qantas – handmade signs are fine too!
Thank you everyone for your continuing support. With your help, I know we can bring this family #hometobilo!
PS If you haven’t already, please sign and share our petition to Qantas and other airlines.
