Dramatic Stand of three passengers not enough to stop asylum seeker removal


A dramatic attempt to prevent a Tamil man being removed to Darwin to face deportation appears to have failed, despite a passenger protest delaying the Qantas flight carrying him from Melbourne to Darwin this morning. In a desperate attempt to prevent the removal, asylum seeker advocates raced to Tullamarine airport earlier this morning and handed out leaflets to passengers encouraging them to disrupt the flight and help prevent the removal of the asylum seeker.
