Why is this important?
At the Victorian State Labor conference last weekend, Bill Shorten maintained his commitment to stopping the boats, while the factions shut down debate on refugee and asylum seeker policy.
Labor must change their way and commit to a policy of closing the camps and bringing refugees here.
Some within Labor are recognising the need for a change in policy, but we need to break this deadlock before more lives are destroyed. By signing our petition you can send a strong message that people in Melbourne and around the country want to see Labor adopt a more just and compassionate policy.
