Hi All,

I've just taken part in a national petition to stop Australia's refugee laws
from being changed for the worse, and we're now aiming for a target of
50,000 signatures before Parliament votes this week.

The petition calls on Senators to reject a new law that would send all
asylum-seekers who arrive by boat, including children, into detention
overseas. Already more than 30,000 Australians have signed it.

Politicians from every major party have expressed deep concerns about this
law. But for these decision-makers to stay strong, and demand serious
reforms or vote against it, they urgently need our support.

Please join me in taking a stand, and sign the petition by clicking on the
link below.


Many thanks,
