JULIE OWENS MP Federal Member for Parramatta Started Petition...
There are over 10,000 Australian citizens and permanent residents stranded in India, where a second wave of COVID has overwhelmed the country’s healthcare system and the devastating death toll continues to grow.
Instead of coming up with a plan to help Australians get to safety, the Morrison Government has made the unprecedented decision to ban its own citizens from returning from India with threats of massive fines and jail time.
I’ve started a petition calling on the Government to:
1. Cancel the ban on and penalties for Australians returning from India.
2. Ensure travel restrictions are based on health advice and time-limited.
3. Establish safe, national quarantine to ensure the safety of Australians at home and overseas.
4. Take immediate action to help stranded Australians in India and around the world to return to safety.
Scott Morrison’s failure to deliver on quarantine has left too many Australians stranded overseas for far too long.
Please sign the petition and share it widely to tell the Morrison Government it’s un-Australian to leave citizens stranded in India:
