Asylum Seekers

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

This Petition of citizens in Sydney, New South Wales draws to the attention of the House, our strong objection to the Government's plan to send Refugees to Cambodia, a very poor country with a long history of human rights' abuses. Australia needs to comply with its international obligations, show humanitarian commitment, accept its responsibility and resettle refugees here.

We therefore ask the House to reconsider the Government's decision to send refugees to Cambodia and for Australia to accommodate these people who have sought safety to make their home in our fortunate country.
