Help change the debate – fund Amnesty’s asylum seeker ad

I have talked a lot about changing the debate about asylum seekers, and now-

I’ve funded Amnesty International’s newspaper ad for a compassionate approach to refugees. Please join me: https://support.amnesty.org.au/index_content.php

Australians pride ourselves on being reasonable, compassionate and fair. But politicians are diminishing these values in political point-scoring over “boat people”.

We have the systems, skills and rigour to assess the people who come to our shores – whether by plane or by boat – with dignity, compassion and respect for fundamental human rights. What we lack is the political will.

Please help change the debate back towards real Australian values by chipping in $30 – or whatever you can afford – to put our ad in this week’s Daily Telegraph and West Australian.

  2. I have noticed that of all varieties of insurance, health insurance coverage is the most controversial because of the turmoil between the insurance company’s obligation to remain afloat and the buyer’s need to have
    insurance cover. Insurance companies’ commissions on wellness plans are incredibly low, so some companies struggle to gain profits. Thanks for the thoughts you write about through this site.
