A sign Dutton can’t miss

BILOELA, Australia

Aug 1, 2018 — Will you help me bring this beautiful family home to Biloela by crowd funding a massive billboard in the heart of Peter Dutton’s Brisbane electorate?

Last night, Priya and Nades’ Biloela friends and neighbours shared a traditional Tamil meal in a local church hall. It was our way to help Priya and Nades say “thank you” to everyone fighting to bring them home to Biloela.

This morning, Priya and Nades woke up to day 150 of their ordeal. Another day of isolation in Melbourne’s harsh detention centre. Another day of fear and worry for the future of their gorgeous, Australian-born girls, Kopika and Tharunicaa.

Since Border Force took Priya’s family from our town in a dawn raid, 118,000 people have called for this much-loved family’s return.

Friends and neighbours have made the 3,600km round trip to Melbourne to comfort and support them.

Two of us went on QandA and convinced a Liberal Senator to take up our cause.

But Mr Dutton isn’t listening – yet.

Right now, I need your help to do two things.

First I need to make sure Priya has the best legal support when the Federal Court hears her appeal on 27 August.

Then I need to bring Priya and Nades’ story to the people with the power to make Mr Dutton listen: the fellow Queenslanders he was elected to represent.

Will you help me cover Priya’s legal support? You can chip in chuffed.org/project/hometobilo

And remember - once Priya’s legal support is covered, every extra dollar will get us closer to our goal of putting up a massive billboard a few hundred metres down the road from Mr Dutton’s Brisbane electorate office.

Thank you for all your support for Priya, Nades, Kopika and Tharunicaa. Together we can bring this family #hometobilo!
