Raise the Quota Campaign
by Tony Kane - Friday, 4 September 2015, 7:11 PM
 
You may have recently seen news stories regarding the millions of refugees leaving the Middle East in their plight for a new life. New Zealand accepts only 750 refugees every year. The United Nations and Red Cross has praised our program that integrates our refugees into society, and now it’s time to do more. This is more than a refugee crisis, it’s a humanitarian crisis. If you support the plight of the refugees, and believe that New Zealand should double our refugee quota, then you can sign the petition <a href="https://www.change.org/p/new-zealand-government-increase-the-refugee-quota-to-1000?recruiter=352634804&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink" target="_blank”>here</a> 
If you want to find out more information, come to C9 at interval at lunchtime anytime next week, to ask any questions regarding this urgent crisis or to sign the petition if you don’t have your own device.
