Australians Against Further Immigration Essay, Research Paper Australians Against Further Immigration OUR VIEW Environment Humanitarianism Economics Health Defences Education Culture Australia’s immigration policy is disastrous, proceeding as if there is no balance of payment problem, no foreign debt and no geographical or environmental constraints to population growth. Continued immigration will finally and irreversibly alter the natural and urban environment, economic viability and attitudes and culture of our nation. The people have been consulted on, or given their consent to, the interwoven policies of immigration and multiculturalism. It is now time for Australians to demand their democratic rights, reclaim their sovereignty and demand a say in the future of their

nation. Australians Against Further Immigration want immigration drastically reduced to zero net. That is, out immigration numbers should merely replace those permanently leaving Australia each year – historically running between 20,000 and 30,000. At this policy of institutionalised, publicly funded multiculturalism should be scrapped. We are a non-racist organisation and attempts to convert the debate to one of race and emotion is a deliberate ploy to silence critics and avoid the real issues. We believe in freedom of speech. The philosopher Spinoza said, ?In a free state every man can think what he wants and say what he thinks?. This should apply here to debates on immigration. We care about Australia and want to pass our heritage to our children and their children. We want

to preserve our Australian identity. We stress that migrants already in Australia are welcome, what we are against is further immigration and the effect this in now having on social harmony. Our opposition is the pro-immigration lobby comprised of big business including the media, the ethnic lobby, churches, misguided humanitarians and both sides of politics. It is our own successive governments inflicting these policies on us and they, not the individual migrant, should bear the blame. We are concerned about the effect of immigration and multiculturalism on this country where as the pro-immigration lobby is only concerned for the migrant or their own interests. ENVIRONMENT Australia, the world’s oldest and driest continent, with severe soil degradation and climatic uncertainty

– a land of, ?droughts and flooding rains?’ already faces declining agricultural productivity. Only 10% of our huge land mass is arable and this land produces less grain than two small states in the USA. The reality is that we always will be a small food producer by international standards. Australia has a responsibility to protect its bio-diversity and not allow its flora and fauna to be pushed form their habits to extinction because of population or economic pressures. In comparison, the pro-immigration lobby feel that we have no moral right to this land unless we push development to the limit. Our population must be stabilised as elsewhere in the world. The use of water for irrigation, urban demand and sewage disposal, is already straining supply to the limits. Our main

cities have grown beyond their optimum size. Pollution, traffic, urban sprawl, failing community service, crime and lower quality of life are occurring. Crowed, sprawling, smog covered cities, with all of the dysfunctional problems of Los Angles, are the inevitable consequences of further mass immigration. Yet the government plans to double the size of our major cities over the next 30 years by immigration. Is this what Australians, new and old, or of and ethnic group wants? The Premier of NSW, Bob Carr was right when he said, ?the nation can’t handle more people….Sydney is bursting at the seams….the debate ought to be about carrying capacity of the continent – a continent that has lousy soils, fragile vegetation and depleted and degraded river systems?.
