All In!! Rally in Solidarity with Lady Cilento Children's Hospital Staff

February 18, 2016

 Join the Refugee Action Collective Queensland for an ALL IN rally on Friday 19 February in solidarity with the doctors, nurses and allied health workers of the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital as they focus on the wellbeing of Baby Asha.

 

This Friday marks one week since the hospital first took a stand, stating they would not discharge baby Asha until a safe home environment could be provided. Allowing the Australian Border Force to return Asha to ofshore detention on Nauru was determined by clinical experts not to be in Asha's best interests. 

 

We agree.

 

Since Friday we've built up enormous pressure together, but we need to keep it up. Nearly 300 people gathered at the hospital last Monday, and we need even bigger numbers this Friday to keep up the momentum in this extraodinary moment of compassion.

 

We must maintain our presence here to secure a positive and permanent outcome for baby Asha, and her family. 

 

Detention harms children and adults.
