Petition to protect people seeking asylum in COVID-19 crisis

People seeking asylum and refugees are some of the most vulnerable in our community, facing extreme hardship and increased challenges during the COVID-19 economic and health crisis.

Thousands do not have an income safety net, access to Medicare, Centrelink or other critical care services. Many are experiencing insecure work, extreme poverty, mental and physical health decline and destitution.

Without support, people seeking asylum are exposed to the worst economic and health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sign the petition calling on Prime Minister Scott Morrison to introduce emergency measures to help protect people seeking asylum in our communities.

Fixing the asylum process

Australia’s asylum assessment system is broken. The process lacks basic legal safeguards to ensure fairness and correct decision outcomes. For more than eight years, people have been trapped in the process without a home or a future with their families.
