VICTORY: visa cancelled for ‘pick up artist’ Jeff Allen

Jan 19, 2016 — Great news - we did it AGAIN! With the help of over 66,000 of you who signed my petition - the Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has cancelled the visa of Julien Blanc’s sidekick, Jeff Allen. He has left the country and will not be allowed back!

I cannot thank you enough for your support in stopping these ‘pick up artists’ who teach violence against women from touring our country.

We have managed to show them that Australia does not stand for violence against women once again.

I’ll be keeping my ear to the ground along with the amazing collection of activists around Australia who campaign tirelessly on matters of gender equality but am hoping it’s the last we see of this awful group. Thanks again - couldn’t have done it without you!

P.S This is also a testament to people power, when the volume of public opinion is loud enough it can't be ignored. It is impressive to see how quickly the visa was cancelled with the help of people power - if there’s anything affecting you and you think a petition might help, it’s so easy to start one at Change.org/start-a-petition
