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.
