Baby Asha to stay, off Nauru

The reports are still unofficial but there is some talk this morning that baby Asha will be able to stay in Brisbane in community detention.   Last night as we all went to bed there was some speculation that authorities were preparing to remove the asylum seeker baby from the hospital to return it to Nauru, so protesters stepped up their efforts.  Maybe now the efforts will be vindicated.

It has many people talking about the plight of refugees, and more significantly, refugee children like little Asha.

The emotional vigil for Baby Asha has been held for nearly a week outside Brisbane’s Lady Cilento Hospital and now word has come in that the hospital and immigration department have worked together to enable Asha and her family to join community detention in Brisbane rather than be sent back to Nauru.

Protest has been active on the ground and on the Internet, supporting the infant who was sent to hospital after accidental burns were sustained on the island in what many say is an unsuitable home for an infant.

Reports this morning of a suitable agreement being met are seeing protesters leave the site somewhat satisfied.

Do you think this is a satisfactory outcome for all?

    A good outcome for the health and well being of this baby. I would now like to see protests about the plight of the baby in Sydney being denied potentially life saving surgery.

    Yes – so far – so very good. However, what will protect Baby Asha and her family from being whisked away by Dutton n Serco when they are in the community. Dutton – how your humanity now – show that you are listening to the voice of the people!

    • Libbi Elliot

      according to fox news, the mother has already been moved , no one knows what the agreement is, and they have now lost contact with Asha’s mother, when they rang the immigration department answered and said the mother would no longer be talking to them, I hope the deal made was in the best interests of this baby, we will find out eventually

    • Joan Rowe

      Rod Warren : It has to be the voice of the majority otherwise we are as bad as the IS they fled from.

    • Pablo Cruse

      Don’t see you standing up for and protesting on behalf of Australian children in danger!

      so true Pablo I saw on another thread where a lady check the sight on the story of the Australian baby who needed a brain operation and couldn’t get it, and there is hardly a comment on that thread.

      nOT THE VOICE OF THE COMMUNITY, JUST THE VOICE OF A DINGBAT FEW

      Pablo Cruse : Australian children have a service these children are denied. As a teacher I sometimes had to work closely with them As a grandmother of a severely developmentally delayed and autistic grandson (not one of the boys living with me) I am in constant touch with the services in NSW. Our children if in real need get good service. Those who are not so needy are the ones who slip through the net, like one of the boys I have with me now.

      Pablo Cruse No Pablo, it was meant to be a shout or scream of bloody frustration with pollies caving in to a dingbat minority

    A very temporary solution – they may put her in Community detention for a while, but they will send her back to Nauru eventually when the fuss dies down. Don’t believe me? Just watch and see.
