Just updating you on a nationwide protest we were in today at Melbourne's Maribynong Detention Centre.
I think Majidi's group at Sydney's Villawood Detention Centre were blocked at the gates.

Good news is that we managed to make contact with some Assyrians inside.
Speaking in Syriac we yelled through razor wire and collected their names.

Almost all the Iraqi asylum seekers are Assyrians.

Their names are:
Wanas Rasha
Nebras Rash
Laith Shehara
Hiba Toma
Maher Yousef
Nancy Yousef
Singam Ramno
Addib Rasha
Sabah Younan

Myself, Doc Sankho, Sakhi Warda and Katy Toma plan on visitng them tomorrow.
They have been locked up for years and with no way to return them to Iraq, because
Saddam has cut ties to the U.N. and no hope of the Australian government letting them enter they remain in limbo.

Oh by the way in case you're wondering........tomorrow is Australia Day.

Back soon,
