Defend a diverse Australia.
The changes include:
- Requiring migrants seeking citizenship to undertake a university-level English language test - which many Australian-born citizens would fail;
- Requiring migrants to demonstrate that they are 'integrating' into Australian society , a discriminatory measure that citizens born in Australia are not subject to;
- Extending the permanent residency requirements of anyone currently seeking citizenship to 4 years, creating greater uncertainty;
- Requiring a test about 'Australian Values', which even the Prime Minister struggled to explain.
But, if public opinion surges against these changes, and the Opposition and cross-bench take a stand, these changes will not become a reality.
Can you sign the petition calling on your parliamentarians to block these changes?
SIGN THE PETITION
Peter Dutton and Alan Tudge's proposed changes to citizenship requirements are unfair, discriminatory and threaten a fair multicultural Australia.
You must condemn this attack on multiculturalism, and commit to blocking the changes.
