Australia can and should do more to help Syrians fleeing war
The world is experiencing its worst refugee crisis since World War II, with some 11 million Syrians fleeing for their lives – that’s equivalent to half the population of Australia.
Australians are known for pitching in during difficult times and we need to urgently pitch in now to help the people of Syria.
This is a time to open our hearts and do our fair share.
We can and should offer a safe haven to an extra 20,000 men, women and children fleeing the brutal civil war which has displaced over half the country’s population.
Already we’ve seen encouraging signs inside the Government for helping more Syrian refugees. Let’s show the Government that Australians support doing our fair share and helping out those in need.
Call on Tony Abbott to offer safe haven to at least 20,000 Syrians now.
