Protest for Bilo family
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.
