Petition update

Your one phone call could end this

Angela Fredericks
BILOELA, Australia

Sep 1, 2019 — 

Friends, this is how we could finally bring Priya and her family #HomeToBilo. We know some politicians in the Liberal-National Coalition are listening to the Australian people, who don’t want to see Priya, Nades and their two little Australian-born girls deported to Sri Lanka. Reports from Canberra say that David Coleman wants to let the family stay, but Peter Dutton won’t allow him to intervene.

Today, the PM is back in the country and back in the office. That means now is the perfect time for you to call your local MP and politely request they contact Scott Morrison and ask him to step in and show compassion.

People within parliament have told us that MPs and Senators are feeling the pressure. We have compiled a list of politicians we believe will be particularly receptive to your call.

Right now, can you pick up the phone and call your local MP? Especially if you live in one of these electorates. These are Coalition MPs who might be able to do something for Priya, Nades, Kopika and Tharunicaa. The PM can overrule Peter Dutton and allow David Coleman to end this family's suffering today, with a stroke of a pen.

Friends, your one phone call might be all it takes to get my dear friend Priya and her family #HomeToBilo

Always hopeful,
Angela
