[Refugee] First we were angry, then distressed – NOW IT’S TIME FOR ACTION

First we were angry then distressed – NOW ITS TIME FOR ACTION

BELOW IS MATERIAL TO START- more will follow in next few weeks leading up to REFUGEE WEEK in JUNE

Please pass on to friends, fellow workers, anyone you know who cares about human rights….

There is less than six months until the next election.

Its important that all Labor MPs know that the Government’s suspension of processing of the most vulnerable and at risk asylum seekers will decide votes at the next election.

The more MPs that know that these changes are unacceptable the more disquiet there will be in the party room. Change has to come from within the Labor Party.

What you can do:

Email and fax through letters to Victorian MPs both in your own electorate and in other electorates. Target Victorian Senators all of them depend on your vote!

You can also arrange to meet your local MP or a Victorian Senator.
