Website for asylum seeker action
Jill and David Parris, Attenders at Northern Suburbs Local Meeting in Melbourne, have put their concern for asylum seekers into action by creating a group named “Fulcrum.”
Fulcrum is a single-issue pressure group that seeks to persuade voters in the upcoming and subsequent elections to vote for candidates according to their views on refugee and Asylum Seeker policies. Candidates will be ranked according to their answers to questions ranging from the detention of children to the United Nations 1951 Refugee Convention.
Details can be found on their website fulcrumaustralia.com.
