The Australian Government recently introduced new caps on international flights, limiting the amount of people coming into the country to sometimes as little as 5 individuals per plane. The amount of people being admitted into Australia from overseas countries has been cut in half in an attempt to stop the coronavirus from being brought in, creating an entirely new human rights risk to the remaining people still waiting.
Sign now and urge the prime minister of Australia Scott Morrison to increase the amount of people let onto flights from overseas countries!
Due to these arrival caps being halved, some airlines have been given zero passenger allowances and there are empty planes coming into Australia, full of cargo but not stranded Australians that are in need of help from their government. The government's unwillingness to assist people in need is painfully obvious and will cause more stess and heartbreak for people in Australia and overseas when the newest international passenger limit comes into effect on July 14, 2021.
Such extreme measures threaten the human rights of Australians. Any travel limitations made must be reasonable, necessary, and proportionate to protect public health. The Australians stuck overseas will continue to face enormous financial, emotional, and physical hardships as a result of these flight caps.
Sign Now! Tell Scott Morrison to increase the international flight caps and bring suffering Australians home!
