More to join Brisbane rally for baby Asha

Brisbane [AAP]

More protesters are set to join a rally outside a Brisbane Hospital to put pressure on the federal government to let baby Asha stay in Australia instead of sending her back to Nauru.

The 12 month old has recovered from accidental burns she suffered from boiling water while in detention on Nauru, but staff at the Lady Cilento Hospital are refusing to discharge her until a suitable home environment is identified.

Protesters have been rallying outside the hospital in support of medical staff and the broader #LetThemStay campaign, which is urging the federal government to let 267 asylum seekers facing deportation resettle in Australia.

A group of people coordinated by Mums 4 Refugees will join church groups, unions and other protesters at the rally on Thursday.
