Increase the number of Syrian refugees Australia is intaking

This petition made change with 370 supporters!

This year there have been more than 4 million Syrian refugees fleeing the country with 15 million others being displaced. In response Australia has provided limited foreign aid and has made no attempt to fulfill its moral duty or act humanely by increasing the amount of people we will intake. Australia is ranked 67th in the world for refugee intake and this number is shockingly low for a country so well off. If Turkey and Lebanon can welcome over 3 million refugees combined why can't we increase our intake? 

This petition is to urge Australia's politicians to act with humanity and to immediately increase the number of refugees we intake to 40,000.

While steps have been taken we can and must do better.
