sign to protect Australia’s citizenship
Australia’s citizenship laws are under attack.
The Turnbull government wants to change the citizenship laws by introducing elitist English language testing and stopping people from making a pledge of allegiance to Australia, even though they are living here permanently.
Sign the petition to stop Peter Dutton from playing games with Australian citizenship.
Stopping people wanting to pledge allegiance to Australia doesn’t benefit Australia. It risks creating a society where a whole cohort of people will never belong. These people will be permanent residents but never able to be a citizen.
We support people speaking English and want to help them learn. The test is already in English but the Government wants to raise the bar to a level that many people who are born in Australia wouldn’t reach. We reject people who are living and working here being treated differently from everyone else - all because of their grammar.
This is not a national security issue – it’s a political attack on modern multicultural Australia.
