Doing Our Bit, Double NZs Refugee Quota

Description

Murdoch Stephens leads the 'Doing Our Bit Campaign' to double New Zealand's refugee quota which would make up for three decades where our intake has only decreased. Today Europe has put up barriers to the overland route, but boats are still coming, including a route from Libya towards Italy. Stephens will give you a background to the world situation, discuss New Zealand's response and point to new policy in this country, particularly with reference to the new community sponsorship model. After the talk there will be a chance for those most interested in getting involved in assisting the campaign this election to discuss strategies and tactics.
