On April 06, 2018, David Mak organised local residents from the Grayndler electorate to met with their local member, The Hon. Anthony Albanese MP, to talk about getting us on the #RightTrack for people seeking asylum.
David Mak recently organised people across the Grayndler electorate to meet with The Hon. Anthony Albanese MP about getting us back on the #RightTrack.
The meeting was very positive, with Albanese pointing to the work he has done over many years on this issue, including his involvement in Labor for Refugees and his use of 'points of order' in parliament to strike out references to 'illegals' as a way of humanising the often toxic political debate.
He indicated Labor's support for permanent protection and the restoration of the Refugee Review Tribunal, which is fantastic! He also said that while Labor can't make arrangements for resettlement of refugees stuck on Manus Island and Nauru, we can expect a "quick resolution" should they form Government after the next election.
