On 29 September Cecily attended a Zoom meeting organised by Sydney Alliance about the plight of Afghanistan refugees and those already here on TPVs. The purpose was to prepare delegations to Federal MPs requesting increase to the number of refugees accepted by Australia, and also to request that permanent visas be given to those here already. There were 112 enthusiastic participants and we were divided into our electorate groups to lobby for a meeting with our MP or Senator. Some of you may have been aware of this meeting too. It is hopes that more people will join the delegations by personal approach from those attending the zoom.
