Protest for Bilo fam­ily

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

A VIGIL will be held in Syd­ney today as friends and sup­port­ers gather to protest the de­por­ta­tion of a Tamil fam­ily of asy­lum seek­ers.

The silent protest for Nades Bilo, Priya Bilo and their daugh­ters Kopka, 4, and Tharunicca, 2, will be held at Martin Place at 1pm, the same time as oth­ers protest across the coun­try.

The Tamil asy­lum seek­ers were be­ing de­ported from Mel­bourne on Thurs­day when a court in­junc­tion forced the plane to land in Dar­win.

They had been de­clared un­law­ful cit­i­zens by au­thor­i­ties.
