NEW INITIATIVE // Letters to Senators

A new initiative that RAC is organising is mass letter writing to the Victorian Labor Senators. This targeted approach pressures parliamentarians to change policy, as this directly threatens their chance of re-election.

Feel free to download the pro forma letter and fill in your details and the senator’s details, and then mail to them. Of course, these letters can be sent to any Labor MP or Senator.

New Change.org Petition – Airlines: Don’t Deport To Danger!

New Change.org Petition – Airlines: Don’t Deport To Danger!

Our new petition calling on airlines not to deport asylum seekers is up on Change.org!

RAC has written a Code of Conduct to be presented to domestic and international airlines. We need as many signatures as possible to send a clear statement that deporting innocent people is illegal under international law and will not be stood for.

The link to the petition is here

Once you have signed the petition, share it via social media, email or word of mouth – we need thousands of signatures to make a real impact!

Pledge to vote for refugee rights

“I will only give my first preference vote to a party that:

(1) supports bringing the refugees detained on Manus and Nauru to Australia, and offering them permanent protection,

(2) ensures people seeking asylum have access to education, employment and income support, allowing them to live with dignity,

(3) ends the dangerous practice of turning boats carrying people seeking asylum back to sea.”
