REFUGEE RAPID RESPONSE CAMPAIGN

 

refugeesuse

 

 

There have been some positive, though limited,  announcements from the Government with regards the treatment of refugees and asylum seekers. It seems to be testing the water to find out how Australians will respond to this. The possibility for change is palpable. It is important that we become more engaged because people are much better understanding of the vulnerable people seeking asylum and are therefore pro-refugee. Too often, the Government is receiving complaints from the negative voices in the community and the media. It is important that we affirm the goverjnment so that it will have the courage to do more.  The anti-refugee lobby has influenced the immigration debate up to the present. We need to continue to lobby the government so that it will not be discouraged by the minority voices when the majority are silent. Sister Aileen Crowe and I would like to organise a Refugee Rapid Response Campaign, made up of volunteers, who will be part of this campaign to contact the government with affirmative or negative messages.  Let me know if you are interested in this campaign. We will keep you posted.

Dear Friends,

Please contact Immigration Minister Chris Bowen and let him know that you support the changes suggested and invite him to do more. You can keep it short. Your phone, email or letter need only have something like this words:

Congratulating the government for considering the adverse affects of detention on children and making arrangements for families to live in the community. Also state that this is a small step in the right direction and that they hope there will be many more positive changes in immigration policy in the near future, such as the elimination of detention all together.
Please pass this on to your networks, community members, families.

Peace and thanks
