Asylum Seekers

To the Honourable Members of the House of Representatives in the Parliament assembled:

Petition of certain citizens of Australia:

We, the undersigned, express our concern and dismay at the punitive and harsh policies and conditions to which people seeking asylum in Australia are being subjected. We have, as a country, prided ourselves in a culture that 'goes in to bat for the underdog' We ask for more human respect for our culture and for the people in need be shown rather than treating these people as a 'problem' to be solved.
