Don’t we have the right to live?
Indian students in Melbourne are deeply concerned over the spate of attacks that has left one of them battling for life while another recuperates from a stab injury.
The friends and acquaintances of Sravan Kumar Theerthala, who was attacked with a screwdriver over the weekend, expressed their concern outside The Royal Melbourne Hospital where he is admitted.
“We are not feeling safe basically in Australia, we are not feeling safe at all,” one of them told the Herald Sun.
Another Indian said, “They told us that it is a multicultural country you know, but after living here for three years, I will just say it is a multi-racism country you know.”
Standing outside the hospital, they held placards, one of which said, “Don’t we have the right to live?” “How many more?” asked another placard.
