The 27-year-old is accused of trying to smuggle more than four kilograms of marijuana into the Indonesian island of Bali last October, a crime punishable by firing squad.

From Australian travel agent launches own protest against Corby trial

I think this is a good way to keep this case in the news for a little while longer. I’m not sure how much it will help her, but at the same time, Bali doesn’t need any more bad press. I wonder if others will join in this protest – I have read reports of others booking trips elsewhere, but I am unsure if the impact of this case can be measured.
