Let's Make A Change

Please write to our Australian politicians to ask them to urgently pass a law that overrules The Hague Convention and allows Australian and First Nation Mothers and their children to stay in the safety of Australia if domestic violence and abuse is shown.  

 

Please call and email the office of the Attorney General, Mark Dreyfus and ask:

Why is the Australian Government allowing Australian mothers and children to be deported into known domestic violence situations? This is incongruent with the Government's claim of operating a zero tolerance policy of domestic violence and abuse towards mothers and children. 

 

Why is the Australian Government allowing Australian children to be deported into intolerable and dangerous situations, including war? Europe stands on the threshold of war, yet Australian judges are ordering vulnerable Australian First Nations children to such countries - against statutory law. 

 

Why are the best interests of the children not considered in Hague Convention proceedings? It is abhorrent that the judge presiding over a Hague Case referred to the law as draconian. A law involving children should not be draconian. A full court judge said they understood the irreparable damage caused by removing a child from its main custodial parent. Yet, they still order Australian and First Nations children away - against heath professionals advice. Away from their main custodial parent. Away from safety.
