Petition to Peter Dutton
Stand up for what makes the US and Australia great
President Trump’s Executive Order has rejected many of the values that our countries share. He's announced a complete ban on Syrian refugees and an indefinite ban on others fleeing danger and more than halved the number of refugees able to start a new life in the US. This decision goes against the grain of our common values. The values that say we treat people equally and with respect no matter where they come from. We help people in danger, give them a fair go and always lend a hand. These values are reflected on America’s iconic Statue of Liberty, ‘Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free’. With the US pulling back from these values we need to demonstrate our strong support for them. Ask Minister Dutton to increase the refugee intake from 13,750 to 30,000 each year so we can help the people in need the US has turned its back on.
Petition to Peter Dutton
Together we can care for the people Trump won't
President Trump’s Executive Order has shirked US responsibility to protect men, women and children seeking safety. He's announced a complete ban on Syrian refugees and an indefinite ban on others fleeing danger and more than halved the number of refugees able to start a new life in the US. The US government has decided not to pull its weight and take on its share of the global responsibility to protect people in danger. We are calling on countries around the world including Australia to step up and share responsibility where President Trump won’t. While it’s promising that Australia offers safety to 13,750 people each year, we have the ability to open our arms to more. Sign the petition and call on Minister Dutton to increase the refugee program to 30,000 people who need our help each year. Image caption: First Syrian family welcomed to Toronto.

Petition to Malcolm Turnbull, Malcolm Turnbull MP
Malcolm Turnbull needs to condemn The Muslim Ban!
"Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has refused to join other world leaders in criticising Donald Trump's harsh new immigration measures, saying he would not "run a commentary on the domestic policies of other countries". This is not good enough. It is not domestic policy - Discriminating based on nationality or religion is a human rights violation. Malcolm Turnbull needs to announce publicly, that Australia does NOT accept America's decision to introduce a "Muslim Ban".
Petition to Greek Asylum Service, Greek Government, European Asylum Support Office, European Court of Human Rights, European Union, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, The Court of Cassation (Greece)
Please help Roauf obtain justice in Greece
Roauf Khalil Aqayi is from Iran. He has worked tirelessly as a humanitarian for more than ten years. During this time he tolerated intimidation, injustice, threats, suffering and non-physical torture. This almost led him to madness and death for many years. Roauf was an asylum seeker for around two years in Iraqi Kurdistan. He has now been an asylum seeker in Greece for about nine months. Roauf gave hundreds of documents to the asylum service during his interview. The documents confirmed almost everything that he claimed however, despite this he has not been accepted as a refugee in Greece, because they could not understand why he is still alive and well, after years of humanitarian and human rights activities in Iran. The authorities confirmed that he changed his religion many years ago from Islam to "Unitarian Universalism". Roauf also wrote and published a philosophical book entitled "Zero Present Theory" that rejects ideas of God, heaven and hell that are present in some religions such as Islam. Due to the extent of the documentary evidence, it is likely that Roauf will face death penalty if he is returned to Iran. Roauf has even received death threats due to a humanitarian help, in the greek refugees camp. Due to the above we support Roauf and request Greek Asylum Service, Greek Government, Supreme Court of Greece, European Asylum Support Office, European Court of Human Rights, European Union, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to make decision justly and not to send him back to Iran where his life will be in serious danger.
