#toNZ Urgent Action
Ask your MP about #toNZ.
P
lease email or call your federal member and ask them these two questions:
1.
What will it take for Australia to accept the NZ deal?
2. What will happen to the asylum seekers left in PNG if
we don’t accept the deal?
We are seeking to have every MP and Senator in the country be faced with these questions prior to an important meeting taking place next week.
