Attention: The Prime Minister of Australia: Tony Abbott
Request: Immediately increase intake of Syrian refugees

Dear Prime Minister
The Syrian refugee crisis is the greatest humanitarian tragedy of our times.
Hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees are taking great risks to flee torture, persecution and death from the Syrian Regime and ISIS, and many are drowning at sea because no country will legally let them into their nation.
The drowning yesterday of 3 year old Aylan al-Kurdi highlights the horror of the refugee crisis: No child should die so young nor in such a callous way.
Enough is enough!
Please open up the intake of Syrian refugees into Australia.
We can stop the tragic deaths of these people seeking a life without fear of persecution and death.
