"Being on temporary protection feels like we have been forgotten. We’ve been recognised as refugees but because of the government’s punitive policies, we’re not allowed to have any long-term security.”
Things don't need to be like this for Sayeh and others like her.
Refugee Council of Australia is fighting this injustice at its source. We are leading a group of organisations to pressure the government to end Temporary Protection Visas and create real pathways to permanency for refugees in Australia. We have already begun developing creative ideas for how to work with the Immigration Minister David Coleman to ensure people like Sayeh have the security and certainty they deserve. We have a humanitarian solution.
