2010 Membership Drive

The current Government has suspended processing asylum claims from Sri Lanka and Afghanistan and has announced they will house them in a reopened Curtin detention centre - the most notorious of the Howard era. Asylum seekers will now be kept in a cruel limbo, anxious about their future safety, and held in isolation in the remote Australia desert.

The Opposition has declared they will be even tougher, threatening to turn boats back at sea and bring back temporary protection visas. And elements in the media have gone back to the bad old days, calling asylum seekers "illegals."

A Just Australia continues to counter the winding back of policy reform, by promoting positive policies in the media and with politicians. And of course by keeping our members informed so they can get involved.

But to continue this work we need your help - and now more than ever. Each dollar you give to AJA has an enormous impact on just and humane policy reform for asylum seekers.
