UPDATE: We have had confirmation from the High Court that the findings will be handed down at 2:15pm Friday October 5.
This Friday we believe the High Court will hand down its findings on David Manne’s challenge to indefinite detention.
It has been over 4 months since Ranjini was first taken into the Villawood Detention Centre. After 4 months of relentless campaigning, hundreds of letters and cards and countless sharing of Ranjini’s story – 7 people will now decide on the legality of indefinite detention.
Although this case does not directly concern Ranjini – the finding will establish a precedent which will have an impact on her freedom.
Of course, regardless of what the court says – Ranjini and her family, as well as the other 50+ people in her situation, still need us.
They need us to be loud – they need us to convince our leaders that Australia can be better than this.
This Friday – all of Ranjini’s supporters must be louder than ever!
This Friday is Freedom Friday.
