Fill the 86 Tram With Flowers for Aiia Masarwe

Parliament Station, Nicholson Street Tram Stop
A touching tribute following another tragedy.

On Wednesday morning the body of 21-year-old Aiia Masarwe was found in Bundoora near the Route 86 tramline. The Palestinian Arab and Israeli citizen had been in Melbourne on a study abroad program, and was assaulted and murdered on her way home from a night out.

A tribute has been organised by those mourning Masarwe’s death that will fill an 86 tram with flowers to honour her.

Following the Keeping Silent Vigil at Parliament House tonight, you can place flowers on the 86 tram departing Parliament at 8.01pm. The flowers will then be placed in Bundoora. If you're unable to attend the vigil organisers encourage you to head to your nearest 86 tram stop with a candle.

Organisers have said Masarwe's uncle has communicated that red roses were her favourite flower.
