China has imprisoned over one million Uighurs in concentration camps, and imposed stringent surveillance on the rest of the Uighur population in Xinjiang province, in a campaign that is effectively ethnic cleansing.

The small Uighur community in Australia is desperate to get their families out. Husbands are waiting for wives, and for children they have not seen in years.

Foreign Minister Marise Payne has expressed deep concern about what is happening in Xinjiang. But there is a simple, small step that she, Prime Minister Scott Morrison, and Immigration Minister David Coleman can take: pressure China to release the families of Australian Uighurs, and give them visas.
