Sydney: Fijians end Villawood rooftop protest

16 November: Three Fijian nationals have ended their rooftop protest at Villawood detention centre near Sydney, Australia.

Australia’s immigration department says that police and authorities successfully talked two people down yesterday afternoon. The third man had ended his protest the previous night, without being offered any concessions. All three were said to be in good health and were being cared for at the centre.

Australian media reported that the protest was started by the woman, who feared her deportation was imminent.
