The Right To Return Home
Remove the caps – Allow all Australian citizens and residents to return home now
Why is this important?
Up to 100,000 Australians remain stranded abroad, abandoned by the Morrison government during an international pandemic.
The introduction of flight caps has made it impossible for stranded Aussies to return home as flights are cancelled one after another, month after month, almost one year since the pandemic hit.
Many Aussie expats are stuck overseas illegally, jobless, homeless, broke and desperate to get back to Australia and unable to do so due to the implications from the flight caps. Expats and long term travellers were told to 'take one for the team' and let the desperate travellers get home, only to know be hung out to dry, totally abandoned by Scott Morrison and his empty promises.
The only way they can get home is if Scott Morrison and his government stop the fear-mongering, steps up with an effective COVID safe strategy and removes the flight caps now. Our Aussie mates need to return to the safety of their homeland and they have the right to do so.
No one's asking for handouts or free flights - they're asking for the right to return home. Let's help them get home. Remove the caps now.
