On July 23, a local group of education professions, Frederika, Rick, Cherie, Anita and Pho-Ling - met with QLD Senator Murray Watt to discuss critical issues regarding people seeking asylum.  

Understanding the need for fairness and to treat others how you'd like to be treated, Senator Murray Watt agreed to advocate in parliament, within his party and publicly on the following issues:

1. That Australia should provide an orderly program of resettlement including substantially increasing funding for the processing of resettlement and resettling of children, women and men in appropriate (safe) third party countries (e.g. New Zeland).

2. That people on temporary protection visas will be given permanent protection and that TPVs will be abolished.

3. To reinstate family reunion rights for people who have been found to be refugees.

4. Time limits to the determination of refugee status and also time limits to the holding of people in off-shore detention centres

5. To review of the Migration Act 2018, so that all of our domestic laws are in line with the UN Convention on Human Rights.

The group are part of a growing movement across QLD and Australia calling for fairness, safety and freedom for people seeking asylum in Australia. This includes getting the 118 children and their families off Nauru. #EvacuateNow #KidsOffNauru
