Dear Secretary

Re: Australian Citizenship Legislation Amendment (Strengthening the Requirement for Citizenship) and other Measures Bill 2017

  • state who you are
  • what state you live in
  • how long you’ve lived in Australia
  • your contributions to Australia
  • how the Citizenshi changes will affect you and/or why you don’t like the Citizenship Bill or both.
  • Speak to your experience/personal situation or your children or partner or spouse.

Most of all be respectful – swearing and nastiness is counterproductive to what we’re trying to achieve.

For more details about posting or emailing a submission go to the Parliament website.
