Congratulations everyone! We have reached our biggest milestone yet - 1000 signatures on our petition!!! This means:
- 1000 Australians have expressed their concern over past and present asylum seeker policies
- 1000 Australians have asked both major parties to create asylum seeker policies which honour the Refugee Convention
- 1000 Australians have reminded both major parties of the 5 Facts About 'Boat People': Legal, genuine, innocent, few arrive, no queue
In response to these first 1000 signatures, we are in the process of contacting the media and every Liberal and Labor politician.
We are telling them that our movement is growing - that increasingly, Australians want humane policies that honour our international obligations.
Well done, everyone! Thank you for signing and spreading the word. We look forward to seeing support for the Refugee Convention, and for humane asylum seeker policies, grow stronger and stronger!
