Amnesty International Australia have made a submission to the Australian Labor Party National Platform consultation in the lead up to the 48th Australian Labor Party Conference in December 2018.
Our submission focuses on key aspects concerning human rights in Australia.
This includes establishment of a Human Rights Act, raising the age of criminal responsibility to fourteen, and improving Australia’s humanitarian programme and immigration policies.
How you can take action
The government must legislate a Human Rights Act so that people have the power to take action when their human rights are violated, and so that everyone’s rights are respected and protected.
- Sign the petition calling on the Australian government to legislate a Human Rights Act
- Email your local MP and let them know you support protecting all our human rights in law.
As a global movement of 10 million people, and 500,000 people in Australia, Amnesty International has the people power to build public support for a Human Rights Act. Learn more about what are human rights and our Human Rights Act campaign work.
